    You have assigned less space to /home partition. You have only 8GB Disk. I would suggest you to create only two partitions.
    SWAP 512MB
    / rest of free space.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    That error has nothing to do with RAM size. Assign a little bit more space to /usr and /home partitions.
    Why do you need those partitions? Check this link too.
