The error message points to a missing file on the Mac and should not 
appear on a Linux based system.

I did not want to 'assume' this.  That leads to improper directions.

If the OP is indeed running on a Mac, we need to modify the dylib check 
so that it is bypassed when running Linux on one (I know of a lengthy 
thread on the Fedora Users list where someone is trying to install FC13 
on a Mac with the proprietary nVidia drivers and is running into issues.)

I agree with a driver re-install.  it is possible that incorrect drivers 
were installed on a Linux installation on a regular PC type system.  I 
did not want to recommend this until I was certain that the problem is 
not a broken system detection script.
