Hehe, yeah.. That's what most people are complaining about. :-)

Wait, don't do it right now.. nork has made the mistakes when he committed
my www/linux-opera7. I already have sent the PR to fix it. The best way? You
can use portupgrade or pkg_delete and 'make install' in the
www/linux-opera7. Be sure to backup the ~/.opera, then delete it. Copy the
bookmark (~/.opera/opera6.adr) back in ~/.opera/ and it will work fine. I
explained in the pkg-messages, but nork doesn't add this file when he
committed it. Hopeful, one of committer will update linux-opera7 quickly,
before I get multi-emails if everybody want to use it.

BTW: I have tested Flash 5 (same way above link) with linux-opera7 and it
just work, but I haven't test with Flash 6 and Java plugin, yet. I normal
disable the plug-ins, but not when I am over at www.apple.com/trailers/ (use
galeon or mozilla with mplayerplug-in). :-)
