    Exclamation [Solved] Lubunt 12.04 Alternate install taking too long

    I'v been installing Lubuntu 12.04 Alternate and it been going at least 10 hours, but going through all the steps. Not that long before I installed Lubuntu 10.04 and the install didn't take long. So what would be wrong?

    There is not enough memory on the computer.

    Is it a GX150, by the way?

    "Computers with less than 700 MB of RAM are considered low-RAM computers." - Lubuntu/Alternate_ISO

    "installs on systems with less than about 384MiB of RAM (although note that low-memory systems may not be able to run a full desktop environment reasonably)." - Lubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)

    So do you think 256MB RAM is enough for running Lubuntu 12.04?

    Good you got it solved. It surprises me that such a small amount of RAM is enough.

    I have been playing with a gx150 (with 512 MB) the last couple of days. In case you want to keep experimenting:
