Date: Au­gust 14, 2012 6:00:41 PM CEST
On Wed, 1 Aug 2012 Rolf Niepraschk sub­mit­ted an up­date to the texlive-dummy-open­suse pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: This is a "dummy-pack­age" which achieves the de­pen­den­cies of the openSUSE TeX Live pack­age's with­out in­stalling the real files Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
up­date for TeX Live 2012
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/sup­port/texlive/texlive-dummy/openSUSE/ . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/texlive-dummy-open­suse (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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un­der a Linux dis­tri­bu­tion: Linux dis­tri­bu­tions typ­i­cally re­quire by de­fault, but only dis­tribute a rather out-of-date ver­sion.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 openSUSE Linux dis­tri­bu­tions.
