Name        : texlive
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2007
Release     : 46.fc10
URL         : http://tug.org/texlive/
Summary     : Binaries for the TeX formatting system
Description :
TeXLive is an implementation of TeX for Linux or UNIX systems. TeX takes
a text file and a set of formatting commands as input and creates a
printable file as output. Usually, TeX is used in conjunction with
a higher level formatting package like LaTeX or PlainTeX, since TeX by
itself is not very user-friendly.

Install texlive if you want to use the TeX text formatting system. Consider
to install texlive-latex (a higher level formatting package which provides
an easier-to-use interface for TeX).

The TeX documentation is located in the texlive-doc package.
