The real good news is that is possible to work with SAP ABAP/BW HANA in computers with 8GBRAM.
For that reason I have created a Linux openSUSE virtual machine with all the systems and software required to practice our SAP ABAP/BW for HANA skills and more. Enjoy It !!!

We need to validate that uuidd service is runing. To see that use the command:
sudo service -status-all | grep uuidd
If the service is no running you need to use the command:
sudo service uuidd start
Change the user to npladm (SAP system administrator)
Start the SAP Server. Use the command: startsap ALL (to stop the SAP Server use the command: stopsap).
