How Much RAM...

Postby mattpg1 on Tue Jun 10, 2008 12:11 am

I'm downloading 5.0 right now. How much RAM does 5.0 Main Edition need for a Live boot?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Roughly the same as the other editions
Some 300 + MB to boot the live CD and some 200 + to run, but the recommendation is at least 512 MB and preferably 1 GB +
You could download the gparted live CD (very small download) and make a swap partition if you are low on RAM. The swap will then be used
