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use of Live under a Linux distribution: Linux distributions typically require by default, but only distribute a rather out-of-date version.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