    Default revtex package of the American Physcal Society and opensuse-11.4

    I have texlive-latex installed on opensuse-11.4 OS and was trying to install revtex4-1 package of the American Physical Society. In the process I had to run
    #unzip revtex4-1-tds.zip -d /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
    However my machine does not have /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
    Shall I create this directory and then run the command?
    Thanks for help.
    P.Rudra.

    where does that package come from...and, is it an install instruction
    you are following which dictates the location to unpack to?

    are the instructions written for generic Linux, or what?

    well: unzip run as a normal user will neither create the directory nor
    be able to write to the directory even if it existed..

    so, i wonder who wrote the instructions ?? can you give the URL to the
    instructions you are following..

    tell me, what does this "revtex4-1 package of the American Physical
    Society" do? that is, is it a document you wish to edit...or, is it some
    kind of extension added to LaTex which must be executable....or what?

    It already appears to be installed on my system in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/revtex or if you are referring to the BibTeX package, that is in /usr/share/texmf/bibtex/bst/revtex,
