Known Issues

Trouble a user might run into with Debian based installs.

Unable to install Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010

Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 fail to validate the registration number to continue installation.

This occurs because media is mounted with the noexec flag by default for users as a security precaution.


Allow an ordinary user to mount the filesystem. The name of the mounting user is written to mtab so that he can unmount the filesystem again. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line user,exec,dev,suid).

To temporarily address the issue, unmount the media and then mount the media with the exec flag:

mount -o exec /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
