described update procedure does not work

Anonymous created an issue

The update process, as described in the manual on page 16, does not work.

Simply copying the recent version 3.12 of Beamer to ///usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/beamer// leads to: {{{ This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian) entering extended mode (./abc.tex LaTeX2e <2009/09/24> Babel <v3.8l> and hyphenation patterns for english, usenglishmax, dumylang, noh yphenation, loaded. (/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/beamer/base/beamer.cls (/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/beamer/base/beamerbasercs.sty) Runaway argument? Header$ \ProvidesPackage {\beamer@rcsfile }[\beamer@rcsdate \space (r\ETC. ! File ended while scanning use of \beamer@parseid. <inserted text> \par l.13 \ProvidesClassRCS $Header$ }}} This happens at leas on Ubuntu 11.04 coming with Beamer 3.07 .

    I GOT SOLUTIONS OF THIS PROBLEM

    1. open the "beamer.cls" and "beamerbasercs.sty"
    2. replace the whole line "\ProvidesPackageRCS $Header$" to "\ProvidesPackageRCS $Header: beamer.cls,v 70f9d8411e54 2011/09 $" in both files. [without symbol " ][within ONE LINE]
    3. save

    then it just works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
