VMWare Workstation on Ubuntu how much hardware required?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2008
Perhaps this should be under hardware it is not a hardware "problem" exactly...
I am back on an old kick of running Windoze in a VM on a Linux box. Started a few years ago but did not have the time to do too much. In a nutshell I have an evaluation copy of VMware workstation which I successfully installed on Ubuntu 6.10 (don't ask about installing on Fedora 7 - my first attempt). I successfully installed Win XP Pro and Win Vista Ultimate (bloat). They each seem to run and can access the network, Internet etc.
I decided to see if I could run both at once. Memory utilization was low ~400 MB per the Ubuntu system monitor. CPU utilization ran high but not always pegged at 100%. However, the hard drive light came on and stayed on and on and I decided to shut down the XP machine. And the light stayed on and on and on... Finally got both VMs shut down after about 15 minutes.
So I am thinking that perhaps I need a 15K rpm SCSI drive or two to build a decent performin
How much swap space
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2007
This will probably sound like a silly question but...
How much swap space do I really need?
Does it help to have more two or three swap partitions?
Does it help to have one really large swap partition-say 10-20 GB?
I'm probably going to be using a 250 GB hard drive so space won't be an issue.

How much swap space for 4GB RAM?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 27, 2011
I've heard various things, from needing double the RAM you have to almost nothing.
I do want the ability to suspend/hibernate, so I guess I need 4GB. But do I really need double my RAM?

I was just wondering how much ram is needed(and reccomended) for Ubuntu 10.04. Also, is there a big difference between Ubuntu and Xubuntu on an older computer?
How much memory required for 8.04?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 1, 2008
I will be installing Ubuntu 8.04 on one of my laptops and would like to know what the optimum (not minimum) amount of memory should be?
Going forward I plan on using this as my main OS and want to insure that I have enough memory for the future.
[SOLVED] How much space for a full install plus a few extras.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 31, 2013
I know this is a bit of an open-ended question but I am considering dual booting Debian and Slackware again (I have a long term plan to migrate to Slackware when I can wean myself off dependency-resolving package management). My Debian install is taking 27.6GB of the 60GB SSD I want to use for / -- that leaves, according to conky, 24.5GB free. Is a 20GB partition for / likely to be enough for a multilib install of Slackware plus about another 500MB of third-party software? My Debian install is quite bloated due to my having installed KDE, Gnome, Enlightenment and a good many other DEs and WMs as well as the XFCE I use so I can, if needed, shrink my Debian install but do I need to?
How to know how much ram linux programs are using?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 5, 2012
I was going to buy a new laptop but that seems daft considering I don't have enough money to buy a good laptop and my old laptop works perfectly (despite being 6 years old).
My HP Compaq nx6325 has 1gb of ram. For a small amount I can upgrade to 2gb but I want to know how much ram certain programs use whilst being run to see if it's worth it buying.
I'd like to use screen recorder app (that i got from ubunto center) but that seems very laggy and I'm not 100% sure if it's due to the lack of video ram (only 128mb) or the fact that the programs been used along side screen recorder are taking to big a bite out of my 1gb ram.
How much RAM will I have if I install 32bit instead of 64bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2010
Right now I have 64-bit version of Ubuntu, but there are some applications I often use that refuse to work on 64-bit architecture. Also my system is old and I got some trash around, so my best idea to cope with these 2 problems is install all from scratch. I have 4GB RAM.
How much RAM will I lose after installing the newest Ubuntu/Kubuntu 32-bit version, if any?
I searched for answer a lot. I found numerous threads about it, but all of them contained answers like "it depends", "if", "maybe", or just explanations hard enough for me to get lost fast (I'm a user, I don't know how things work, I need them to work).
If I have to provide you some info about my hardware configuration, I gladly will. Just let me know what you need to give me an exact answer (if this is at all possible). I'll be very grateful. I need every bit of my RAM, I abuse it.
Thank you in advance.
How Much RAM can Ubuntu support?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 17, 2009
One of the things that greatly bothered me with Vista was the fact that I couldn't use my computer's hardware to it's fullest in terms of RAM. It would cap out at ~3.5GB, rather than using the full 4GB.
Will Ubuntu recognize the full 4GB and make use of it?
