    Default virtualization installations issue

    Hello All,

    I am trying to install the Virtual machine through xen kernel But it gives me the memory error.
    My machine has 1GB memory, VM machine needs 256MB RAM.....But yet during installation the error comes that the machine has no enough memory. Any idea on how to resolve this issue,

    Regards,
    Ghulam Yaseen

    To be honest Xen would not be my choice. Consider Virtual Box.

    Will second that. installed virtualbox, installed XP did all the updates in
    just a few hours this afternoon with no probs at all ( almost a pleasure to
    reboot xp in about 15 seconds ) :-)

    Due to a faulty ram module this machine only has 2 gig as well, new stuff on
    order and the CPU is a lowlly Dual athlon 64bit @ 2.5g, will be a quad
    phenom soon though ;-)

    Still runs very acceptable.

    Dear caf4926,

    I think this is SUSE forum and we need to discuss or share information related to SUSe.
    I honestly need help!

    We appreciate that you need help with Xen, but you may have to be patient until someone with that knowledge comes by. I and many others would have made the same comment as @caf4926 did, because many people here use Sun's VirtualBox for virtuallization, especially on their home computers.

    In the meantime, you will find many Howto's on this page under the titles "Virtualization" and "XEN". I hope that helps for now.

    If somebody would ask me to get Xen working properly, running VM's smoothly, first question would be: How much RAM do you have? If the answer would be '1 GB', I'd stop until it's at least 4 GB.
    People are trying to tell you to use VirtualBox instead of Xen, please give that a try. With your 1 GB Xen will never bring you what you want, VirtualBox can.

    Your original post said you needed 256MB, but how much memory does your
    graphics card and others need? Sounds like 1GB is not enough.

    Hi Russ,
    How is the Solution 4 test going? You seem to be having fun with 11.2 these days. Hope to see you back in that other thread sometime with a positive result.
    Appreciate your help.
