How to Un-install opera from FC5


Hi guys I'm having problem un-installing an older version of opera from my FC5. At the time of installing there was no opera for FC5 so I used the version for FC4. When I linked up today I saw that Opera now had a version for FC5. It would not install, telling me that Opera was already installed. Yet, it did not run properly. So I followd some links on this forum and ran the following;
rm -rf/usr/share/opera and
rm /usr/bin/opera and
rm -rf ~/.opera

but the new version will not install, giving me the same message of telling me that Opera is already installed.

Can someone please help me, I would like to install the new version of opera.

thanks

Hein

Code:
rpm -e opera
that command should clean up any opera file you have left. If it fails, you may have to use the --force option. I'm not sure how erasing the files manually affects the rpm process. After that, you should be able to install opera with ...
Code:
rpm -i opera-8.54-20060330.6-shared-qt.i386-en.rpm
The -U and --force switches might force an upgrade of opera, but again, I'm not familiar with how erasing previous files affect the rpm process.

Hi bssmith
Thanks, I have now gone the long route to re-install FC5. After that I installed opera but now have no links to run it, any thoughts?
