. To convert any of our cross distro tar packages into Slackware format, just use my 'op2slk' (Opera format to Slackware format) conversion script
. (If you are not so fussed with needing native packages then this page
will tell you how to install with our install script. Check out the suffix option for multiple non-clashing side by side installs. This is handy if you want to install both a stable and a test version.)
If you want a way to know about new versions I also wrote an Opera specific script to check if updates are available
. It'll track stable, betas or snapshots. It'll also work on any distro and try to pick the most appropriate package for your setup and even install it if you want. If the download is a tar, op2slk is available (within your $PATH) and the host distro appears to be Slackware it will even handle conversion first. Which basically means Opera updates for Slackware using the native package manager!
