Hi,
  Your cluster is missing the OpenGL-related drivers and libraries that
the standard VMD builds need to be able to run. Instead of using the
full-featured version of VMD, you should download and install the text-mode
version of VMD which is listed on the VMD download page as:
  LINUX_64 Text-mode

It's the 5th item down on the list of platforms. If you install that version
of VMD, you should be able to run it successfully on your cluster.

Cheers,
