Bob Tennent submitted the texlive-dummy-enterprise-linux-7 package. Version date: 2014-10-16 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Dummy texlive RPM for use with RHEL 7 and derived distributions Announcement text:
The texlive packages available for RHEL-7 (and derived distributions such as CentOS-7) are relatively old (2012) and seriously incomplete. Although it is possible to remove the native texlive packages and install a more recent complete TeXLive distribution, any attempt to install packages that depend on texlive resources (such as a2ps, latex2html, lyx, etc.) will normally trigger the re-installation of the obsolete native packages. This is inefficient and the redundant packages can interfere with the TeXLive resources. This package contains a "dummy" rpm which is intended to satisfy any dependencies on texlive resources, allowing packages like a2ps, latex2html, lyx, etc. to be installed without using --nodeps and without triggering re-installation of texlive rpms. All native texlive packages will be removed when the texlive-dummy package is installed.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/support/texlive/texlive-dummy/EnterpriseLinux-7/ More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/texlive-dummy-enterprise-linux-7 We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

texlive-dummy-enterprise-linux-7 – Dummy Live RPM for use with RHEL 7 and derived distributions

The package provides nothing significant, other than claiming to satisfy the Linux package requirements relating to Live, so that the Linux installation does not automatically haul in Live.

After installation with this package present, the user can install her/his own copy of Live, and take advantage of Live’s own update mechanism.
