Thanks.
I think, maybe it Opera 9.50b, which is included in VL 5.9 STD should be added to repos?

The final version of Opera 9.50 has been released. Has it been added to the repos?

I've been using Opera for many years and have never used a repo package for it. I just download Other/StaticRPM, Static QT package, Download this package in TAR.GZ format. Then I unpack it into its own directory, su to root, and run the Install.sh script. I accept the defaults and run ldconfig after the installation is complete.

The Slackware package for Slackware 11 or 12 would probably work, too.
