Does CentOS really use that much more RAM than Debian?

I've got a 128MB minimal CentOS (KVM) VPS that's struggling to yum install as it's running out of memory. I've never had that issue with apt-get and Debian on a small box like that. So my question is, is CentOS more memory hungry or is it just the fact that i'm running KVM instead of OpenVZ now and thus am using more memory (no shared kernel etc).
