In my experience with the installation of Fedora 19/20 (same sort of
anaconda installator, F19 has v19.30.13, F20 v20.25.16, Centos 7 has
v19.31.79), RAM requirements also depend on the number of packages
and their size. On some slightly larger installation (kickstart
install from 8 repositories with over 50000 RPMs, 3600+ packages was
installed, highest rpm package file had over 200 MB in size) was
1.5 GB RAM insufficient, with 2 GB RAM installation was successful.
