Currently, Opera doesn't provide any repositories to install. So, the only option is available to download the required RPM package but, Opera use LZMA/XZ compression on Opera rpm packages to keep them as small as possible. However, this has the drawback that Opera will not install on some older RPM-based distros as their RPM version does not support these latest compression methods. So, here we used repacked opera packages with LZMA/XZ compression support. so that they can be easily installed on older version of RHEL/CentOS/Fedora distributions.
