Which Distri Version are using? Dapper, Breezy...?

$ apt-cache policy opera
Mögliche Pakete:9.00-20060616.7
9.00-20060616.7 0
500 <a href=""></a> dapper-commercial/main Packages

$ aptitude show opera
Package: opera
New: yes
State: not installed
Version: 9.00-20060616.7
Priority: optional
Section: non-free/web
Maintainer: Opera Packaging Team <<a href="">packager at</a>>
Uncompressed Size: 12.7M
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.3), xlib6g (>= 3.3.6) | xlibs | libxmu6,
libqt3-mt (>= 3.3.4), libstdc++6

as you can see here, opera does not directly depend on libqt3c102-mt,
but libqt3-mt has somewhat a relation to it:

$ aptitude show libqt3-mt
Conflicts: libqt3c102-mt, libqui1-emb, libqt3c-mt

Just to see what depends on libqt3c102-mt i would:
$ sudo aptitude purge libqt3c102-mt

!!!! do not plain accept it, read the ouput crefully, !!!!
!!!! if uncertain hit "n" to abort !!!!

and post it´s output here
