Opera 12.02 final for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8 (RHEL, CentOS, Scientific)After 11.61 a few people complained about not being able to install Opera on older Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL 5.8) and clones, due to our use of LZMA compression within the rpms we provide. Whilst RHEL 5.8 is not one of our supported distros Opera 12.02 does actually run quite well on it, with the most obvious limitation that it loses native Gtk styling and falls back to its own built in style (which by coincidence doesn't really look that out of place in the default RHEL 5.8 Gtk theme! ). The only major issue therefore is getting Opera installed. However this can be done either via one of our official tar.bz2 packages (using the included install script) or by repacking.
The good news is that I have done the repacking for you. So here are the 12.02 rpms repacked with bzip2 compression, so that they can easily be installed on older RHEL/CentOS/Scientific 5.8. Enjoy!
Edit: Changed the links to 12.02

Agreed. Always ran smoothly on my computer - never had an issue.
