Increase recommended RAM to greater than 512Meg

Description

Some of the java web services, such as GeoServer?, crash when loaded up in a system with only 512 Meg of RAM. The issue is running Java, Tomcat, the application and Firefox, which leads to more than 512 Meg of RAM being used.

As a result, we need to update the following docs:

  • download.rst
  • quickstart/virtualbox_quickstart.rst
  • quickstart/osgeolive_quickstart.rst

Recommended RAM will probably be 768 RAM. (To be confirmed with testing)

even with the system's tomcat stopped (freeing 85m ram) geoserver still won't start in a 512mb VM. tested & bumped up to 768mb in doc/en/download.rst, r7110.

Changed translations from recommending 512 to 768 Meg RAM.

In English docs, also noted that 1 Gig is preferable for Java based applications.

Once applied to the 5.0 release, this issue can be closed.

Replying to camerons:

In English docs, also noted that 1 Gig is preferable for Java based applications.

fwiw java apps seem happy enough to run with 768mb RAM, most everything else is happy with just 512mb. 1gb certainly won't hurt though.
