No more Opera for CentOS 5.7 (for me) Decided to update everything on my old hp laptop today, including updating Opera from 11.52 to 11.60. I could not install the downloaded rpm. It turns out this is intentional as can be read in the above link. I followed the advice and installed 11.60 from the ftp site, the tar.bz2 version because the standard packer in 11.60 is XZ which is apparently not supported in CentOS 5.7 In a nutshell it installed but crashed soon thereafter, so I am only using Firefox in CentOS 5.7 now. The link has more details, disgruntled users etc. When CentOS updates again to 5.8 I will wipe it and install what mack_guy recommends .. XFCE flavour.
