Segmmentation fault

I downloaded Opera, installed it, (it was rpm) but I do not
knew how to get the icon on the desktop, but anyway I called it up on an xterm and the licence agreement flashed by and then it said "segmentation fault" and that was all.What is a segmentation fault and can it be fixed,and if so, how?

There is a little bug in opera's rpms I believe, what you have to do is launching /usr/lib/opera/6.0-20020510.3/opera instead of /usr/bin/opera.
