Hi!

Download the Flash-player and install it in your Opera directory. On this page you'll find "installation instructions" too. Try it this way..
Code:
tar -zxvf install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gz
cd install_flash_player_7_linux
"close all browsers"
./flashplayer-installer
type the plugin directory of Opera
This way it worked for me. If it detects your Opera installation it will autoinstall the plugin.

Test it

www.hylix.com is working fine on my opera browser. You could install a newer version of Opera and try it out.
