    Default What download package do I need??

    Index of /unix/10.0-Alpha-1

    From this index I cannot decide what package is used.

    Unless you are running a Mac you will want either the intel-linux or x86_64-linux directory -- whichever your machine's arch.

    Based on you asking that question, i must assume that you are not a
    long experienced user of openSUSE Linux--correct?

    If that is true then let me recommend you NOT fetch Opera from opera.com.

    Instead, install Opera using the openSUSE built in *installer* and
    UNinstaler package manager named YaST.

    It is simple to use. Just find it in the menu (depending on your
    version and desktop, it is probably in ) Menu > System > Yast

    Click that, give your root password, search on opera, then find that
    in the new list generated on the right, left click the box to place a
    check mark in it, hit the "Accept" button and go get some tea. When
    you come back Opera will be installed correctly, and its icon will be
    in the menu (Menu > Internet > Web Browser > Opera).

    There are LOTS of good reasons to do it that way:

    - YaST automatically finds and installs ALL needed software (aka:
    dependencies)

    - YaST automatically does it correctly (including placing an icon
    where needed)

    - YaST will automatically offer to install security updates that
    patch your Opera, as they are available

    - if you get tired of Opera, YaST can be used to as easily DELETE the
    program, effortlessly, AND corectly.

    Try it. And, the SUSE wiki has about a million pages ;-) on how to
    use YaST..

    OH! and the same goes for almost everything you might really need.
    (That is, do NOT go to mozilla.com for FireFox or Thunderbird, and do
    NOT go to sun.com for Java, etc etc etc)

    No GUESSING of which is best, ever again:

    amd64-freebsd/ 04-Dec-2008 11:22
    intel-freebsd/ 04-Dec-2008 11:22
    intel-linux/ 04-Dec-2008 12:12
    intel-solaris/ 04-Dec-2008 11:24
    ppc-linux/ 04-Dec-2008 11:24
    x86_64-linux/ 05-Dec-2008 08:26

    HINT: If YaST does not have what you need then, give this a try:
    http://software.opensuse.org/search
    and look for the "One click install button"

    The user is wanting to test out the development build of the package -- which is not avail in YaST.

    Ok, new guy (who does not even know which architecture to grab) wants
    to venture out and test development builds--great, more power to him.

    Let's say my thoughts were directed toward adding a known capable
    Opera to an already stable and usable platform.

    Wait, I just read his reply and wonder if your assumption was correct.

    I got it squared away. I wasnt sure if I needed RPM's or Tar. Its running fine, got it loaded. I like 10 alpha cause it will work on my universities software. 9.62 wont. His assumption was correct.
