This is a "dummy-package" which achieves the dependencies of the openSUSE TeX Live packages without installing the real files. This makes it possible to install the original TeX Live distribution (http://www.tug.org/texlive/) without the overhead of the openSUSE packages. The "dummy-package" provides scripts in "/etc/profile.d/" for setting the correct pathes of the TeX Live binaries (you should use the default installation path "/usr/local/texlive/"). After installing a new-year "dummy-package" uninstall the previous one. See also: https://github.com/rolfn/texlive-dummy-opensuse

texlive-dummy-open­suse – Dummy Live RPM for use with Open SUSE

The pack­age solves a prob­lem re­lat­ing to use of Live un­der a Linux dis­tri­bu­tion: Linux dis­tri­bu­tions typ­i­cally re­quire by de­fault, but only dis­tribute a rather out-of-date ver­sion. So, by de­fault, the user who wants to use cur­rent Live has to un­der­take “dirty tricks” to over­ride the de­fault Linux .

The so­lu­tion is to de­clare that is al­ready in­stalled; a later in­stal­la­tion of Live will there­fore have no prob­lem run­ning on the sys­tem. The present pack­age solves the prob­lem for SUSE Linux dis­tri­bu­tions.
