(this is what is left in my pbg3 and I do not want to erase the Mac OS 8.6 partition since I am attached to it and also I don’t want to go back an do pdisk and so on since I remember it was really complex). I see that xubuntu need 1.5 Gb of disk space!
It might be ok. I have currently a bit under 3GB used on my efika
machine, which has 650MB in /home, and has in addition of xfce, apache,
postgresql and asterisk, 3 full compiler suites, and a bunch of
libraries installed. So, i am unsure if you can go down to 1.3GB or not.
Maybe you should just install a base system first, and then install xfce
by hand ?
Also remember to count some disk space for swap space.
