Description

If installing to a system with less than somewhere around 600 MB RAM, the installer fails in after_installation_routines.sh because it runs out of memory. The source of the memory usage appears to be unionfs, as its mounts show ~95-99% full, and that would account for nearly 500 MB RAM usage. Seems to indicate something is writing there that shouldn't be.

I installed it 5 times on a VM with 256Mb of RAM and was unable to reproduce. Probably overcome by events since installer changed since last Nov

through multiple attempts again, this is definitely no longer an issue. No problem with 256 MB RAM in multiple circumstances where subject was true previously.
