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.

user

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


cxdiag and CrossOver cannot find libgnutls - Resolved with CrossOver 14.1.3

With thanks to Silviu for help in triaging this issue

This causes failures in applications like Quicken, Outlook, Diablo III, and many more.

It is due to an update to the Debian package name.

For now, create a symlink to the name CrossOver expects to find to restore functionality once the library is installed.

First, install the library:
sudo apt-get install libgnutls-deb0-28:i386

Then, create the symlink:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnutls-deb0.so.28 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnutls.so.28
