[problems with opera loading pages]

But your question pointed me to the /etc/resolv.conf file which was
created by the sysinst installer. It contained three lines:
It seems that Opera only tried using the ipv6 IP and didn't fall back
to the ipv4 one. Since I didn't do the ipv6 configuration yet this
explains why this address couldn't work.
I then removed this entry from the file and I now have a working opera.

Could you send-pr the diff so that it is comitted?

This could be added in a patch too, maybe?
Thanks for your help. :)
