View Full Version : [all variants] Installing xubuntu or ubuntu

I have 256 mb of ram and i know xubuntu only needs 192 mb of ram . When i try to install it it says you need at least 256mb of ram and i have that. It does it on both of them. What could be the problem?

I would personally go and grab another 512MB RAM because it's so cheap these days but one thing that springs to mind is that you have 256MB of RAM but 64-128MB of it is being used by the onboard video, thus making it seam like you have less than the minimum amount.
