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a Linux dis­tri­bu­tion: Linux dis­tri­bu­tions typ­i­cally re­quire LaTeX by de­fault, but only dis­tribute a rather out-of-date ver­sion.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 LaTeX is al­ready in­stalled; a later in­stal­la­tion of TeX Live will there­fore have no prob­lem run­ning on the sys­tem. The present pack­age solves the prob­lem for SUSE Linux dis­tri­bu­tions.
