Opera packages for Fedora with updates

There are a number of Fedora community projects specializing in making Fedora run more smoothly in various world regions. These projects provide additional software packages and installation media.

Opera has long had a strong presence in Russia and the Fedora Russian Community have kindly added recent versions of Opera to their non-free repository. This means that users of this repository can install Opera and receive automatic updates via yum, which is fantastic news!

Not from Russia?

Non-Russian Fedora users could also add these repositories, giving you access to even more software!

Installing Opera

Once the repositories are setup, Opera can be installed as follows:
