Version 10.00 can be used for RHEL 5.

32bits http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...final/en/i386/ >
> http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...4.qt4.i386.rpm
Or : http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...d.qt3.i386.rpm

64bits http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...nal/en/x86_64/ >
> http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...qt4.x86_64.rpm
Or : http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...qt3.x86_64.rpm

Better use yum for the install, there can be dependencies :
Example : # yum install Downloads/opera-10.00*

I think that link is having the file only for 64 bit. But mine is 32 bit.

I'm sure you can click a few more links and see the other versions.

as above, just follow the standard link to the standard download page. Installing old versions doesn't help anyone. I'm sure you can manage to navigate a generic website without hand holding.

I don't know where you got your package, but it's rubbish. I'm using Opera right now, and I don't have libQt: Opera uses GTK.

I'll also add that if you're going to be using RHEL, you need to PAY FOR IT, and REGISTER YOUR SYSTEM. Then you can just type in "yum install <package name>", and it will install whatever it needs to work. Why aren't you using CentOS, since it's 99.x% IDENTICAL to RHEL, but FREE???

You've also been given the link to download the package, and it's not difficult to find.

You can run Opera without Gtk as well. It doesn't depend on either Qt or Gtk but can optionally use either to aid it in looking more 'native' to the desktop environment you are running.

The last build that actually ran on CentOS/Red Hat 5.X was Opera 12.10 (the current stable/support version of Opera is 12.14). You can get a version that will install from here:

http://people.opera.com/ruario/snapshot/Opera/

However, despite being an Opera employee I would not recommend that users of CentOS 5.X actually use this version of Opera as it is lacking security updates:

http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1036
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1037
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1038
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1039
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1040
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1042
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1043
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1044
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1045
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1046
http://www.opera.com/security/advisory/1047

Additionally, I think it is only fair to point out that we have no plans to provide a newer version of Opera that actually runs on CentOS 5.X, so as much as it pains me to say it, if you want to continue to run this line of CentOS as your desktop you are best off looking for another browser.

Please do not advise anyone to run Opera 10.00!! That is a very old version (4 years old and 27 stable releases back, do not be fooled by the relatively small difference in version number). Being so ancient it has accumulated a list of security issues as long as your arm by now.

# 12 .
http://people.opera.com/ruario/snaps...-1652.i386.rpm
> opera-12.10-1652.i386.rpm : Depends on glibc-2.8.
RHEL 5 has glibc-2.5 .

The unsafe 10.00 can be installed. Not really to be recommended.
The OP may not anyway be able to install anything at all
into an unsafe OS with no license ( No security updates ) :
""This system is not registered with RHN"", ref. post #6.

Suggestion : Avoid RHEL 5, install a free version of RHEL 6,
is CentOS 6 or Scientific SL6.
