Re: virtualbox



As far as I recall, it is suggested that you have at least 1GB of RAM to run
VB, as you need to allocate RAM solely to that programme and then the system
you wish to run. I was recommended to have 2GB to allow for the overheads,
using less than 1GB can really thrash your swap area, and even with how lean
Lubuntu is, you'd be pushing VB to have lubuntu, VB and a.n. other operating
system all running within 512MB.

The Community Documentation on VB can be found at
