"What are the system requirements to run this version of Opera for Linux?

The Standard C++ Library is required to run Opera for Linux. This library is
a nightmare to statically link to a project. After some thought, we've
decided that instead of linking it, we'd prefer to sprecify where it can be
found. Most Linux distributions have it available. We've tested on clean
installations of Corel 1.0, RedHat 6.1, Mandrake 6.0, Caldera 2.2, as well
as several others. We're currently preparing to test with Debian and other
versions we've obtained. You can get this library from most Linux vendors,
or you can download and compile it from
