Hi Chimera team,

I need to install chimera and chimeraX on a server with a GPU which I now have access to assist in visualising larger structures, but I don't have any root privileges.

After the first pass installing both, Chimera 1.11 gives me this warning/error when attempting to run:

"OpenGL misconfiguration detected. /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 differs from /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1"

And when I close this dialogue box, I get this:

"Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

  Major opcode of failed request:  149 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  717
  Current serial number in output stream:  718
libxcb: WARNING! Program tries to lock an already locked connection,
        which indicates a programming error.
        There will be no further warnings about this issue."


And when running ChimeraX for the first time, I get this:


ChimeraX: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ChimeraX)
ChimeraX: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /cold/chem/msrnbi/bin/chimerax/bin/../lib/libpython3.6m.so.1.0)
ChimeraX: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /cold/chem/msrnbi/bin/chimerax/bin/../lib/libpython3.6m.so.1.0)

Evidently I need 2 different versions of GLIBC for ChimeraX, but assuming I can install these concurrently without root access, how would I go about telling ChimeraX where to look for the libraries?

Any advice/documentation you have to get the programs working would be much appreciated.
