Review minimum hardware specs #1381
It's very hard to quantify minimums, but I've found 8GB memory (with 12GB swap) and 60GB storage to be "safe" for Linux VMs. (Note that both swap and disk are on dynamically expandable storage).
What specs are workable for both VMs and physical hardware?
I am building MXE on Google Cloud Platform using smallest possible VM instance (1 vCPU, 0.6 GB memory). I build using build-pkg. The platform provides a range of VMs. In future I want to build each commit/pull request on all supported distributions. We can speed up builds by splitting by target.
