Hello.

Can anyone post me an official link which shows the minimal system requirements for Lubuntu 64-bit version. All I could come up with was
A Pentium II or Celeron system with 128MB of RAM is probably a bottom-line configuration that may yield slow yet usable system with Lubuntu. It should be possible to install and run Lubuntu with less memory, but the result will likely not be suitable for practical use. at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu


Thanks.

that is the bottom line for running lubuntu.

The amount of ram you need depends on want you do. You may need more ram depending on usage. Abiword does not take much ram, but libreoffice does. 512mb and above for firefox. I recommend at least 1gb for firefox.

192 is minimal. i've tried 128 in a vm

actually you can boot with 80 megs or so, it's just so damn slow
