this looks like the static package of opera isn't that static like the ppl from want to tell you :] Install the package where is inside (on debian systems lesstif2) and try again

Other way: download the shared package and install everything else the package needs

Thanks for the information . but did you mean that I have to take the static package of the Debian? Or else do I have to install the shared package for Redhat and install all the dependencies? I think the latter is a bit difficult for me. Waht do you suggest?

please help me.

Lot of Thanks in Advance

I would suggest that you download the Static .tar.gz file from Opera.

tar -zxvf opera*.tar.gz
Open virtual console
su, then root password
cd to directory where you untarred the package, should be an Opera directory

That's it then Opera will install itself using its own installer.

Good Luck

I think what stony was suggesting was that you install the lesstif (or Motif) package to get the required library installed. Then try again to install the static Opera package.
