i want to know if there's a minimum amount of ram needed to run a VM in xen.
i heard from this mailing list that swap is impossible to use. so is it possible to run a gentoo or fedora on top of ubuntu with only 230 mb Ram (256 with 16 shared). please tell me. is it entirley futile for me to even try.
