    VirtualBox requires 512MB as a minimum, and I suspect that's beyond what the OS has available, it recommends 2GB as the minimum for windows. https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/End-user_documentation

    Where can I find it? Does it still support VirtualBox?

    Ubuntu Server - https://ubuntu.com/download/server

    DSL: https://distrowatch.com/table.php?di...tion=damnsmall
    Puppy : http://puppylinux.com/

    (I mentioned PuppyWary; I only see Slacko now; I've run Wary on 64MB laptops but not Slacko).

    I suspect none of them will run VirtualBox; but I doubt VirtualBox would run in 128MB of RAM when it states its own doco states 512MB is needed to run it + whatever you want a client OS to use + host OS. (okay Ubuntu Server will, but it'll cause itself to be changed into a desktop version & I doubt it'll be usable on 128MB of RAM for VirtualBox)

    I'll try on a strong PC first. Thanks for links, I'll try them too. Could you help me with the way how to install VirtualBox on Lubuntu 10.04 - I tried https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds but VirtualBox 4.0 couldn't launch that. That was version for Ubuntu 10.04...

    Try a supported version. You're not going to find anything that will install on 10.04.

    Even if you could get virtualbox to install, it will take at least half of your ram to run. You would be left with frozen/crash system. I would not try a VM with less than 4GBs, and if I want it to run well, at least 2x more ram.

    I'm the primary Lubuntu team member allocated to this site, however Lubuntu has a 3 year LTS support life - so 10.04 support ended in 2013-April. The oldest supported Lubuntu is 18.04 LTS, so sorry no. The exception to this (EOL rule) is help is provided moving you to a supported release if required.
