I just installed Opera on Ubuntu 8.04 via the deb installer from the Opera website and it needed 2 lib packages to complete the install. But this installation told me what it needed, then found and installed them, and it worked great. I would think Fedora would be similar - you might want to reinstall to see if you missed something.

Hey Couch, interested to try that. Had a quick poke around again on the Opera site. Just wondering what you actually mean by 'deb' installer?

Don't mean to be a pain, but this is still giving me grief guys.

Tried yum. It looked hopeful, right up until the end bit.

Here's the thing. Opera is a good browser, which is why I want it. I want to persist with playing with it until I get it to work.

Do you guys maybe think it might be worth letting them (opera) know that i am having these problems?

The package is not signed. It is not a problem. Did it install opera? Can you launch it via the command line?

No my friend, I'm afraid it didn't complete the installation and it won't launch from the command line.

Actually Opera is already installed.
The problem is that you don't have the dependancies.
try this:
yum install libqt3
Then try:
opera
And post the errors if any.

OPERA LIVES!!!

I started again again from scratch. Here is the output if you are curious to see it.

[root@unknown005004180ce2 Yoyo]# yum install libqt3

Nothing to do

Then I removed opera and installed it again. Here's what happened when it fired up...

[root@unknown005004180ce2 Yoyo]# opera
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

I was just about to spit the chewy, then away it went. I'm a bit curious about the errors though, but the main thing is that it goes. Will learn yum.

Thanks for your help mate
