    Ubuntu 13.04 system requirments?

    Hello Ubuntu people. I am wondering what the minumum specs for ubuntu 13.04 are because I'm going to run it on an old PC, but i'm not sure if it will work. Also, what size will my usb drive have to be at minimum for me to install Ubuntu from it, because the one I have is 3gb.

    - Thank you guys in advance.

    angrygamer,
    The documentation offers a good idea as to the minimum system specification https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...emRequirements, so give it a go

    Not mentioned in the page, but I do believe your processor need to have PAE capability. I tried installing and live run in non-PAE cpu with 13.04, it just wont work.

    3 gig flash drive is plenty. Like mention, be sure you puter is up to the job. 12.04 has a 2d version of Unity built into it, you may find this a better choice for your video card.

    You might have mentioned the specs of the old computer.

    Consider Xubuntu.

    If OP has minimal specs and wants something light Lubuntu would be a better option.
