Using the graphical installer with 512MB RAM, the graphical installer starts
up, the first steps are successfully, and when it comes to Loading additional
components, it hangs at a early state.
Using 796MB of RAM, the installer ran fine.
Maybe you could document this somewhere (796MB RAM as minimum)?
