Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"There have been many major improvements since the last version.
Since the release of Tech Preview 4, we've cleaned up a huge number
of bugs, made a lot of performance enhancements, we've debugged
many issues related to communications, and done a great deal of
work on the user interface."
"This version has been tested on RedHat Linux 6.2, Debian Potato
2.2, Slackware 7 and Linux Mandrake 7.1; we'll be releasing
versions regularly now with the progress updated. There are now
also ports to other platforms working nearly as well as the RedHat
Linux 6.2 version is. We're compiling on pretty much everything and
making use of tools that are different between platforms to make
Opera work as well as possible."
"Qt 2.2.0 has been released and has been used to make this
version of Opera for Linux. Qt 2.2.0 can be downloaded from a few
different sites. Most sites that carry the KDE project make Qt 2.2
available as binaries or packages. Otherwise download the Qt 2.2.0
source files from www.trolltech.com and compile it for your system.
Opera requires the -gif option to be used when configuring Qt to
compile. Once it is compiled make sure to add the $QTDIR/lib
directory to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in order to
run Opera properly."
