Could someone tell me how much ram SuSE 8.2 really needs to run? After a good install it went down from there, couldn't get back to the desktop. Screen kept flashing tried a rescue, but could only get so far. So I wrote zeros to the drive and started again still no luck. Would go as far as ^[[18`(couldn't find out what that meant) then would hang on the install. Couldn't find any answers on the web, so I did a memory check with the SuSE and from there I learned that a 128 stick had gone bad? Pulled it out and the reinstall went smooth.
So thats my question with only 128 installed it created an additional swap file on the hard drive. Nothing to get excited about but I can tell the hdd is working loading and unloading. Would 512 or more be better?
