In such cases, try building from source:

	# cd /usr/ports/www/opera
	# make install
	# cd /usr/ports/www/opera-linuxplugins
	# make install

Again, make sure linproc is mounted (mentioned earlier).

The about:plugins page should then list the following:

	[J] Enable plug-ins

	Refresh plug-ins		[ ] Details

	> Shockwave Flash		Disable
	Description: Shockwave Flash 10.3 r183

Really - I didn't do more than what was written in the handbook
to get this working. :-)
