texlive-dummy-opensuse – Dummy TeX Live RPM for use with Open SUSE
The package solves a problem relating to use of TeX Live under a
Linux distribution: Linux distributions typically require LaTeX by
default, but only distribute a rather out-of-date version.
So, by default, the user who wants to use current TeX Live has to
undertake “dirty tricks” to override the default Linux TeX.
The solution is to declare that La
X is already installed; a
later installation of Te
X Live will therefore have no problem
running on the system. The present package solves the problem for
SUSE Linux distributions.
