Opera OLPC Edition

Filed under
OLPC
Software

This is a special edition of the Opera desktop version - the Opera OLPC Edition.

We have been testing Opera on the OLPC laptop since we received the "lean-mean-green-machine", as some here at the office like to call it. I have been keeping both the Opera page on the OLPC Wiki as well as my own blog up-to-date about work on it. We feel the time to be ready to show you the progress we have made.

A few notes about this package:

This is (almost) a normal desktop build - so you can run it on any Linux box - but…

…you really want to read this first, before installing it:

This is a build with statically linked Qt, as are our .1 builds - but the static builds are usually made with gcc 2.95 for compatibility reasons.
