Override 1GB requirement



I’m trying to install Discourse on my Raspberry Pi 3. I keep this error message:

WARNING: Discourse requires 1GB RAM to run. This system does not appear
to have sufficient memory.

Your site may not work properly, or future upgrades of Discourse may not
complete successfully.

Now, my question is, can you somehow override this 1GB requirement?

Sure! However, the resulting installation is very likely to be broken or unbearably slow.

If you’re really sure you want to continue on your own, feel free to patch the discourse-setup or launcher scripts to remove the training wheels :slight_smile:

The easiest way is to just edit the app.yml script by hand rather than use discourse - setup.


Alright, thanks! But how exactly do you patch these scripts?

(Felix Freiberger) #5

Sorry to say that, but if you don’t know how to edit these scripts, you should really stick to the recommended installation method.

If you prefer a direct answer to your question: Search for the error message and comment out the line exit 1 after it. Proceed at your own risk.


Ah, alright! Thanks!!
