Googling whould have shown that this has been asked several times. The
solution is that you have to moun the DVD *WITHOUT* the noexec option,
which prohibits execution of programs.

Many distributions automatically mount CD/DVDs, but always with the
noexec option.

Remove that and it will work.

Measure = 0.0000176 mg. Defined as that amount of margarine capable of
covering one hundred slices of bread to the depth of one
molecule. This is the legal maximum allowed in sandwich bars in
