I made an sfs of it for Fatdog64 3 days ago,
It seems Just needs some tinkering to make it run as Root or even as user spot. Just needs to tell user dirs...

I didn't get any time to test it properly.
I will try again tomarrow.
I will keep you updated...

Thanks.

Vivaldi will probably be the best Chromium based browser eventually given the track record of the ex-developers of classic Opera. However, at present only a 64bit version is available. If you an old Opera fan and have a 64bit Linux OS you will certainly be interested.

https://vivaldi.com

Even if a 32bit version is eventually produced (which I doubt) it will have one fatal limitation for users: flash plugin will not work. Chromium based browsers need the 64bit pepper-flashplugin and no longer support Netscape plugins.

In answer to the question:

Yep. Provided you also install libgconf-2.so.4.

The ALT-Linux package did the job for me!

Tried the 32 bit debian package of vivaldi available at softpedia.com.
Of course, thanks to 666philb for providing these 32-bit links.

Works ok. It's got an ugly candy look, though. But it seems to have much the
same functions as the old opera, and at the same places.

Didn't test it much yet. BFN.

I gave Vivaldi a try but wasn't keen so I uninstalled it. However, since then I seem to have been low on pupsave space so I just had a hunt around to find where the space had gone and eventually tracked down a directory called "vivaldi-snapshot" in /initrd/pup_ro1/opt.

This directory was 197MB and obviously did not get removed by the uninstaller.

For some reason gdmap did not help me locate the missing space but maybe I'm using it wrong. When I used it to look at /initrd it said the directory was only a few MB - it did not show the massive /opt directory within /initrd. It obviously was not looking deeply into that directory. No idea why.

Anyway - deleted the vivaldi-snapshot file and all is well now.
