A note about LibreOffice installation memory requirements.
Having had some trouble in failing to install LibreOffice on my
puny 2 Gb LiveUSB, I offer the following notes.
My going in assumption was that if you had an image of a working
LibreOffice setup, it would occupy something like 400 Mb.
A compressed image of this might take around 150 Mb. I'd be happy
to be pointed to verifiably correct data in this regard if I'm
way of on this.
With that assumption, I was not pleased to find than a generous
allotment of 1200 Mb for my PCLinuxOS LiveUSB was not graciously
received by PCLinuxOS's lomanager 3.4.1. In my situation,
lomanager gives a credible & interesting five minutes of
apparently successful activity, which turns out in fact to be
a mere 'silent failure'. No product & no messages.
I think my assumptions are necessary, but not sufficient, by a
small but crucial margin. LO's requirements are stated in the
Installation, not the final product, requires about 1550 Mb for
a successful operation I think is the proper interpretation here.
That's 350 Mb more than I planned to donate to this cause.
It looks like I'll not have a 2 Gb version of PCLinuxOS complete
with LibreOffice under current conditions, unless perhaps I bite
the bullet and learn how to re-master for myself.
