It seems that the 2GB RAM requirement is a true minimum. My 2-in-1 laptop shares its 2GB with the integrated video hardware. I was able to boot GARUDA-XFCE (lite) (the ISO lightly modified for uefi32). Conky shows about 98MB free when idling at the liveUSB desktop. When I launch a terminal emulator, the terminal usually crashes and free memory briefly drops into the 20MB’s.
My question is: given how tight the RAM is with XFCE on my device, is it worth downloading the lxqt-kwin ISO? I like the concept here, but is my Asus T100CHI just too limited for Garuda?
