    Is it possible to use the official Arch Linux repositories to install packages in Red Hat?

    Apparently Opera doesn't provide automatic updates for its Linux web browser. So I am wondering if I can just steal them from Arch.

    I doubt it.
    Each package has to be built against a combination of kernel, library and API versions and specific system configuration; chances of that are very slim.

    Cheers, Nick
