    Unfortunately, we haven't been testing every revision of Mesa to see
    which ones work.  I do know that sometimes it works for a few
    revisions, then breaks, then works again.  Mesa has improved a lot
    in the last few years (since it is the only way to get an Intel
    graphics driver on Linux and Intel has funded improvements to Mesa),
    so right now it usually works.  OpenSUSE 13.1 with Mesa 9.2.5 is
    from 2013-11-19, so it should be fine.  <br>
    <br>
    If I understand what I read about OpenSUSE 13.2 correctly, its
    advantage/disadvantage is that it is a rolling release.  That is, if
    there is a newer version of a particular software package, it will
    be available immediately, instead of having to wait for the next
    OpenSUSE release.  I consider this a huge advantage for desktop
    users because desktop graphics is constantly improving, sometimes
    with newer versions of the Linux kernel, but usually with
    improvements to Mesa.  OpenSUSE 13.2 currently has Mesa 10.3.7.<br>

          I'm sorry, the Matrix graphics is more of a hindrance than a
          help.  It uses the software only OpenGL driver, Mesa, to do
          its 3D drawing.  And the easiest way to get a newer version of
          Mesa on your system is to update it to OpenSUSE 13.2 or the
          latest Ubuntu.  If you have the option of installing an AMD or
          NVIDIA graphics card in your system, do so, and install the
          proprietary driver.  It will be like going from walking to
          driving a car -- much faster, and you can buy a budget car, a
          regular car, or race car, depending on your budget. :-)<br>

                Try running "chimera --debug", it should give a clue
                where in the initialization process chimera died.  That
                said, it is most likely a graphics driver bug.  Run
                "lspci | grep VGA" to see what kind of graphics card you
                have.  Then, if OpenSUSE has a tool or package for that
                graphics card, install it.  If not, if you have ATI/AMD
                or NVIDIA graphics, you will download the right driver
                from amd.com or nvidia.com, respectively, and install
                it.  If you have Intel graphics, upgrade your system to
                OpenSUSE 13.2.<br>
                <br>
                    Best of luck and please let me know if updating the
                graphics driver fixes the bug,<br>
