The graphical installation also FAILS with 600MB RAM

The graphical installation WORKS with 700MB RAM

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-05-12 13:51:27 UTC
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.
