Opera 7.11 and Red Hat 9


Okay, I'm very much a linux newbie (the first time I used it was about 8 hours ago) and I can't get Opera to function properly. I've installed the latest version in Red Hat 9, but when I open the program everything is funky. Windows are not showing up, buttons are spread scattershot across the screen... it's really a mess, and something is clearly very wrong. I've tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it several times to no avail. I've also installed openmotif because I read on another thread here that that could help. Does anyone know what may be the problem? Has anyone else used Opera 7.11 with Red Hat 9?

There is no other version of Opera for linux. 7.11 is the first one ported, so if this doesn't work, it's nada.

I got it to work on Mandrake 9.1 using the .rpm module, if that's any help. Which version did you download? (I know when I chose linux, it gave me a list of about 15 choices).

well then i guess you can see who doesn't use the opera browser, but i'm not one that likes to get proven wrong, so i would like you to explain how Opera for Linux has made a jump from version 6.12 to 7.10

oh and one more thing, why on earth would opera have a changelog for there browser for linux if it was the first version. <-click me->

yah thx, over and out!
