redhat 8 and opera 6.01
got a problem with redhat 8 running opera 6.01 and opera exits for no apparent reason randomly quite a bit, anyone know what might be wrong, doesnt give any error messages at all, im only new to the linux thing and was wondering if no-one knows of a possible solution would one of the windows versions run under wine alright?

Im running redhat 7.2 with opera 6 and I have never had any problems with it. Opera on linux is up to 6.10 so it is probably worth updating to see if it fixes your problem. I personally wouldnt try using wine to run opera win32 on linux. Life is too short . If you cant get opera working why not use netscape or mozilla?

hmmm... I had the same happening with the Opera 6 versions on RedHat 8.0
Anyway why stick with the opera 6 for linux that hasn't a mail client? Move to Opera 7.11 for Linux i386, English (US) version. This is the most recent linux version, you can download it from http://www.opera.com/download/index.dml?platform=linux
I'm very happy with that version, also search the tutorial on AO on how to add fonts, so your opera on *nix experience isn't flat and unreadable
