I have 2 questions:
1. When I try to install Chromium browser there is a popup to install medium core installer. What does that mean?
2. When I search for Opera Browser noting to be found. Where can I find this?

Hi there,
for 1. that is the repository which comes from the install media - I'd suggest to disable that, have a look at https://doc.mageia.org/mcc/8/en/content ... troduction
For 2. that is because we don't have that in our repositories, and you can use upstream repositories directly. Have a look at this thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13722

Hello

you may download the rpm file from opera.
Code: Select all
dnf install <path to your rpm>.rpm

If you add the repo, there's no need to manually download the rpm.
