[Bug 1050595] Re: Ubuntu Server installation with 128M ram hangs

Maybe the "fix" is upping the memory requirements.  Are there any useful
cases where a server has this little amount of RAM?

  Ubuntu Server installation with 128M ram hangs

Status in “lowmem” package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  Installing quantal 20120913 server image hangs at detecting disks and
  all other hardware with 128M.  Our currently stated minimum system
  requirements include 128M ram for -server installs, so I'm using a KVM
  session with 128M to test this.

  Bumping this to 256 will allow it to make it through the install, but
  still get's lots of OOMs throughout the installation process.
