The Handbook describes how to install and use Opera on this page:
Unfortunately that page fails to mention that in order to make use of the
Flash plug-in with Opera, one has to first mount the "linproc" thingy.
The Handbook page mentioned above should describe what has to be added to
/etc/fstab in order to get the linproc pseudo-filesystem mounted.
Install Opera and the associated flash plugin and then try to visit a page
containing some flash content. It won't work until you mount the linproc
Note that it is now impossible to build the linux-f10-flashplugin11 port because dependencies are marked as forbidden (unless you manually modify the Makefiles).
Mounting linprocfs before starting www/opera does not seem to help for me, it detects no plugins at all.
I have linux-f10-flashplugin11 and opera-linuxplugins installed. Installing www/nspluginwrapper does not help either.
For bugs that match the following

Reset to open status.
I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
