Installing Software from a DVD

I'm trying to install Xilinx ISE 10.1 to Debian from DVD. What's the easiest way to install from the DVD? When I first install the DVD, I get a message stating "You have just inserted a medium with software intended to be automatically started. Choose what application to launch." That makes sense, but eventually I get the message "Error autorunning software. Cannot find the autorun program."

For the record, the DVD has 'setup' and 'info' bash scripts at the root level, but trying to run setup from the command line results in a permissions error. There's got to be an easy way to do this. What am I doing wrong?

Hi -

It sounds like you're trying to install the "Xilinx ISE Design Suite" on Debian Linux. I presume the DVD is for Linux (not Windows), or has Linux and Windows on the same DVD.

In any case, why not try the following:

1. See if you can find any .rpm's or .deb files on the DVD (and install the appropriate-looking RPM with your Debian package manager, e.g. "apt")

2. Check the Xilinx web site and/or product documentation for installation and usage instructions:
