    Question Installing VirtualBox on Lubuntu 10.04

    Hi there, guys!

    I've got a question on Lubuntu 10.04:
    How on the Earth can I install any version of Oracle VirtualBox on it?
    This line in Terminal doesn't work: sudo apt-get install virtualbox

    So could you help me?

    10.04 has not been supported for more than 5 years. Please try 18.04, which is LTS, or 19.10.

    fyi: the 10.04 means it was the 2010-April release of Lubuntu (ie. releases are yy.mm in format ). Where as Ubuntu 10.04 LTS came with 5 years of supported life, Lubuntu was a flavor and only had 3 years of supported life, release-upgrading to 12.04 LTS (also EOL) then 14.04 LTS (also EOL), then 16.04 LTS (Lubuntu 16.04 is EOL, but Ubuntu 16.04 is still supported), then 18.04 LTS.

    Can 16.04 LTS or 18.04 LTS be installed on a computer with 64 or 128 MiB of RAM? I need an Ubuntu version that could do this! Do you know one? Please, I really need it.

    You want to install a virtual machine on a system running such little RAM?

    Re: Installing VirtualBox on Lubuntu 10.04

    Officials write about lubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver:

    • Memory (RAM): for advanced internet services like Google+, YouTube, Google Drive, and Facebook, your computer needs at least 1 GB of RAM. For local programs like LibreOffice and simple browsing habits, your computer needs at least 512 MB of RAM.
    • Processor (CPU): the minimum specification for CPU is Pentium 4 or Pentium M or AMD K8. Older processors are too slow and the AMD K7 has problems with Flash video.

    Yeah, I want this. Will I face a problem doing this?

    Re: Installing VirtualBox on Lubuntu 10.04

    I never tested Lubuntu 18.04 (or 18.10/19.04) on any machine with less than 1gb of RAM (1.5gb for 19.10). The alternate-installer should be used on machines with low-ram (ie. 700MB or less) but the smallest RAM for any semi-recent Ubuntu is Ubuntu Server (minimal; https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/servergu...m-requirements) being 384MB of RAM, as no machine made in years has less than 1gb.

    Lubuntu no longer provides a minimum amount of RAM (https://lubuntu.me/taking-a-new-direction/), even the alternate installer hasn't been updated since early 2018 (ie. no 18.04.3 or more recent builds), but lower than 1gb of RAM really applies to x86 (https://lubuntu.me/sunsetting-i386/) with builds stopping Dec-2018. I doubt any Ubuntu outside of server would be usable in 64MB/128MB of RAM - myself I'd use PuppyWary, DSL or something else (and the Puppy I'm mentioning is not the Ubuntu based version).

    You may be able to get a host running on it, but getting a VM installed within the host with that little RAM isn't going to work out.
