Description of problem:
In newest compose 20100511.3 (Workstation) with virtual machine with 512MB RAM installer refuses to run graphical installation and fails with message that I don't have enough RAM to run the graphical installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run network installation with virtual machine with 512MB RAM
text mode installation
used x86_64 installation
Created attachment 413336 [details]
The graphical installation also FAILS with 600MB RAM
The graphical installation WORKS with 700MB RAM
Memory requirements for the x86-64 install in particular are rather high due to bigger python objects. Combine this with your installation method and the memory needs for yum and lvm, and this is what happens.
