Fixing dead Opera on 7.04 Feisty!
EDIT: Opera has patched up their browser to overcome this problem. See my new blog entry that explains how to download this AND have Opera!
I did the big update as I previously described only to find 10min before leaving for work, Opera no longer loads!
Personally, it’s not an issue as I use FF, but I’ve installed Opera for my wife, she prefers it and when she woke up without it I’d be it I’d be in trouble!!!!
I was getting the following errors:
ERROR: ld.so: object ‘libjvm.so’ from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object ‘libawt.so’ from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Well I didn’t fix it before I left, but now I have a bit of time, I’ve found a fix from the Opera forums here:
But this isn’t right for Ubuntu, the actual command is:
sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libx11-6_2%3a1.1.1-1ubuntu2_i386.deb
From what I’ve gleaned there is a problem in QT which is found in the latest version
The next problem is this only fixes it until you do another
wajig upgrade. To stop it installing next time simply
wajig hold libx11-6. I’d keep an eye out for future updates to this package though as I’d imagine that Ubuntu will have it fixed in version
