Opera 12.02 for Slackware
Monday, August 13, 2012 6:15:45 PM
Many Slackware users fetch the latest Opera from SlackBuilds.org. However with the imminent release of Slackware 14, SlackBuilds.org is currently not accepting any updates to its package database. As such the version of Opera currently available there is stuck at version 12.00. However since the Opera 12.02 maintenance release includes several security updates (see the bottom of the Opera 12.02 Changelog for details) it is a good idea for all Opera users to upgrade.
Here are some packages in the mean time, whilst you await Slackware 14 and the re-opening of SlackBuilds.org submissions.
Slackware 13.0 or above:
Slackware 12.2 or below:
If preferred, here is an opera.SlackBuild you can use to make packages yourself locally. (Note: This SlackBuild needs xzdec to decompress our official .tar.xz packages. If you are running Slackware 12.2 or below, install the xzdec binary first).
Alternatively, if you are using one of our official 'cross-distro' packages with included install script, you can continue to fetch updates to Opera from www.opera.com as always.
P.S. Looks like Slackware 14 will be awesome!
