Main memory

The main memory for running Rocrail and Rocview on one computer should be at least 2GB.
In case of Raspberry Pi, 1GB will do for small layouts.
More is better especially in case of one or more concurrent applications are running.


A display with a minimal resolution of 800x600 is required.
A higher resolution is recommended.
