From the logs you sent, I noticed this, which is a bit of a red flag:
Info) OpenGL renderer: Mesa GLX Indirect
What graphics hardware do you have in this machine?
If you run VMD in text mode, and load the same file, do you have
the same seg fault? Run VMD in text mode like this:
vmd -dispdev text
If you do NOT have the seg fault in this case, then I am assuming
problems with the OpenGL graphics configuration. On the other hand,
if you do encounter a seg fault here when running in text mode, then
we will need to dig into this in much more detail.
If you can run the text mode test and get back to me, that'd be great.
