    Opera 9 beta


    Has anyone tried this out? I'm iffy about trying it because on the download site it says to only run on a properly backed-up system because it's beta software, but may that only really applies to Winblows...

    I'm using beta right this very moment. I found an ebuild on bugs.gentoo.org but it was somewhat messed up so edited it and it now it works fine. If you want to try it you need to have portage overlay directory and then create the directories /usr/local/portage/www-client/opera/

    for portage overlay you need this in your /etc/make.conf
    Code:
    PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"
    then paste the text of my attachment in a file called opera-9.0_beta1.ebuild
    Code:
    the run: ebuild opera-9.0_beta1.ebuild digest
    then unmask this version in /etc/portage/package.unmask
    by adding this line
    Code:
    ~www-client/opera-9.0_beta1
    then

    Code:
    emerge -va opera

    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
