You can install the new version from DVD next to the
one provided by openSUSE.
It is not very difficult and as far as I remember only the GUI of tlmgr needs
some extra package installed, the rest is working out of the box. You only
need to tell kile etc. to use this new version. How to do this can be found
by googling it. This is possible.
Hi, Cor. Yes, I could build a dummy package, texlive-dummy, to tell
kile etc. that texlive-dummy provide texlive-latex & other texlive
packages. But some package, for example, dalatex requires
tex(calc.sty) & some other files from texlive, it's a long list, I
don't it's a good method to do this.
The other way is to branch the texlive program you use
in your home project
and remove all the texlive requires and rebuild it. Then you can remove
texlive and install from DVD and immediately use this.
Is that okay? I think I should use software packages from the repo
first, not my home project repo, and it may be endless...
