Opera on Solaris 9 - Sun Solaris

    I downloaded Opera 7.20b7 for Solaris from www.opera.com
    and installed it fine. Whenever I ran it, it locks up the
    screen. (tried both the static and shared version).

    I can still telnet/ssh into the box, "top" shows Xsun
    uses >90% CPU.

    There are a couple of opera.* newsgroups dealing with this and frequented
    by Opera developers. Try posting to opera.beta and opera.os.solaris (I
    think these are the names).

    Bye, Dragan

    P.S. As far as I know, the latest opera is b11. Shame they don't produce
    Opera for Solaris x86 any more :-(

    I have 8/03 and latest 9_Recommended too.
    plus the Xsun patch for Xprint:

    I saw beta11 from the newsgroup at news.opera.com and tried it
    with same problem.

    I posted a question there and it seems other people with "older"
    Solaris 9 is ok.

    I run Solaris 7, and Opera7.20b7 works fine (but can be a bit sluggish).

    But I have had Opera7.20b11 go catatonic on me. See opera.os.solaris.

    I installed it on Solaris 8, and the main problem I have is that it
    will sometimes freeze if you leave a dropdown option selector open
    for too long. (version 7.20b7 in my case)

    Other than that it works pretty darn well, for me. After suffering
    for a couple of weeks with the Netscape 4 that came with Solaris 8,
    I was so relieved and happy I couldn't wipe the smile off my face..

    True, there are minor issues. I have trouble browsing google groups
    because they have frames. Sometimes big pages in frames just do not
    appear. Beside that, opera on Solaris is about the only way to browse
    WWW pages. I use mozilla and lynx when I get desperate for the odd few
    pages that give too much trouble, and have completely removed netscape
    4.x. Still, for any serious use I suggest people start out with
    Solaris 9 with the latest 9_Recommended, JRE before trying anything.
