This is a "dummy-pack­age" which achieves the de­pen­den­cies of the openSUSE Live pack­ages with­out in­stalling the real files. This makes it pos­si­ble to in­stall the orig­i­nal Live dis­tri­bu­tion (http://www.tug.org/texlive/) with­out the over­head of the openSUSE pack­ages. The "dummy-pack­age" pro­vides scripts in "/etc/pro­file.d/" for set­ting the cor­rect paths of the Live bi­na­ries (as­sum­ing the in­stal­la­tion path "/usr/lo­cal/texlive").

After in­stalling a new-year "dummy-pack­age", unin­stall the pre­vi­ous one.

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un­der a Linux dis­tri­bu­tion: Linux dis­tri­bu­tions typ­i­cally re­quire by de­fault, but only dis­tribute a rather out-of-date ver­sion.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