[solved] Minimum RAM requirements?

Post#1 by thewiz » 08 Oct 2017, 16:57

What should be considered minimum memory (RAM) requirement for running porteus kiosk? I'm looking at running it on an Intel NUC, so it would most likely have at least 2 GB of RAM. Would that be considered a "safe" minuímum for normal booting from a USB memory stick, or possibly an internal drive? Since it seems to boot just fine from USB, I'm considering skipping the internal drive altogether.

Minimum RAM requirements?

1GB should be considered as minimum RAM requirement as kiosk system is copied entirely into RAM during boot.
2GB will be enough for 99% of use cases.

Thanks
