Basically the problem is this one from the Opera Wiki page: "There is at present an incompatibility between the Opera activity and the OLPC Rainbow security system on some builds. If when you launch the Opera activity, the screen goes blank and stays blank, you have likely encountered that incompatibility." > In the past, we've been able to achieve both isolation and a working > activity (e.g. Scratch) with some easy filesystem tricks... > > Also, have you filed a bug? I've tried searching dev.laptop.org for > "opera rainbow" but I didn't find any likely tickets... My memory's kinda fuzzy, but I think I went straight to the guys at Sugar Labs then asked over there (web form?)... basically the answer I got was that we really can't do much about it because the standard linux desktop version of the latest Opera rpms installs its files to /etc/ and other system directories, and the new Rainbow Security system requires that Activities only install and run from /home/ (olpc/ ?) or something like that, and the only way to fix it was to modify Opera to install/run only from Rainbow-permitted directories and that's not possible outside of Opera's organization because Opera is closed-source. -Naz -- Carlos Nazareno http://www.object404.com -- interactive media specialist zen graffiti studios http://www.zengraffiti.com -- Philippine Flash ActionScripters http://www.phlashers.com _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
