Base System Requirements

Void can be installed on very minimalist hardware, though we recommend the following minimums for most installations:

ArchitectureCPURAMStorage
x86_64-glibcx86_6496MB700MB
x86_64-muslx86_6496MB600MB
i686-glibcPentium 4 (SSE2)96MB700MB

Note: Flavor installations require more resources. How much more depends on the flavor.

Void is not available for i386, i486, or i586 architectures.

Before installing musl Void, please read the "musl" section of this Handbook, so that you are aware of software incompatibilities.

It is highly recommended to have a network connection available during install to download updates, but this is not required. ISO images contain installation data on-disc and can be installed without network connectivity.
