Homestead Memory Issue

Posted 4 years ago by Meverhart

What are the minimum memory requirements for a Homestead VM? Looking at the Homestead.rb file it seems like it's set at 2048. Can I lower this to 1024 or even lower?

I have a older Asus laptop ( i5, 4GB RAM) that I've installed Xubuntu on and whenever I run Homestead the laptop slows to a crawl. I'm assuming it's a memory issue having using the VM, Chrome, and PHPStorm at the same time.

If I can't lower the memory requirements of Homestead can you suggest any tweaks o make things run smoother?
