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un­der a Linux dis­tri­bu­tion: Linux dis­tri­bu­tions typ­i­cally re­quire by de­fault, but only dis­tribute a rather out-of-date ver­sion.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