I do a fair amount of "customization" on every build I install. Therefore the fact that current Opera versions for example want to install something in /etc is no obstacle for me - I just "lump" that requirement with the other "system modifications" I apply (e.g., putting something in /etc to support 'rsync' between XOs)). [I also install the Adobe Flash-10 player onto all the Browsers my XO has.] In any case, I have for a long time been running Opera (currently 9.60) on (F9-based) 8.2 and on (F10-based) Joyride. I launch Opera from its icon in Home view. I do not need to disable Rainbow in order to run Opera. mikus _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
