Opera 8.54 worked fine with Mandrake 10.1. Unable to install for Mandriva 06 x86_64

Hello everyone.

I am new this site and forums. I recently updated from Mandrake 10.1 to Mandriva 2006 x86_64 running on an AMD 64 3500+ and I want to run the Opera web browser. I have previously run Opera on Mandrake 10.1 and installed from an RPM file downloaded from the Opera website.

When I try to unpack this file using Mandriva I receive an error message indicating that the software is incompatible.

Has anyone had experiences like this?

Opera does not have a 64 bit version of their browser as far as I know. One reason I do not use 64 bit operating systems.

Complain to Opera.

I was hoping that it wasn´t the case. Then again, it gives me the opportunity to explore Firefox.
