The problem isn't with your package manager.
Linux isn't like Windows, where you are usually supplied with all necessary
DLLs in the Opera package. They come separately, and are called
"libraries." For example, I tried to install the fax-sending program from
my Win95 disk under Win98. It needed a Win95 DLL, and everything else
needed a newer version. I had to choose. That is approximately what has
happened here. To run Opera, you need libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 on your
system. You will most likely have a version of libstdc++, but it won't be
new enough. You will need to find what package installs it and upgrade the
package. The consolation is that what happened to me with Windows won't
happen to you. Getting the more recent version (almost always) won't make
older programs unusable. The version on my Mandrake 9.1 is the one
mentioned in your message, but you will need to get the Yellow Dog package.
Get it from your usual update source. Search under libstdc++ . Packages
are also available at http://rpmfind.net .
This will happen every time something required is either not there, or not
