Description Shawn Starr 2012-11-11 00:10:05 EST
Description of problem:

If host or VM has too little memory, ie 512MB anaconda throws exception and locks up.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any TCX release

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set a KVM VM instance to 512MB for memory
2. Attempt to install
3. Select timezone, repeatedly trying to select this while it attempts to spawn systemctl fails, anaconda crashes/hangs
  
Actual results:
Crashes

Expected results:
Should prompt user they have not enough memory and stop install.

old Anaconda would inform you of not enough memory and gracefully abort. New Anaconda UI fails in a poor user experience
