    gymnodemi got a reaction from Igor in Armbian_19.11.3_Renegade_buster_current_5.3.11 only recognizes half of ram   
    Hi all,
    Sorry to revive an old forum post but this is directly related to the issue described here. I have a librecomputer rk3328-roc-cc board with 1GB of Ram which was only should about half the RAM. I spent way too much time in u-boot and arm trusted firmware land but I was able to go back to the old Firefly git repo for u-boot and do some source analysis to come up with a patch which will correct the RAM issue in u-boot.
    I'm a new Armbian user, as I was struggling getting the new 5.4 main line Kernel working on my board when I upgraded from Debian Stretch. Armbian has an amazing build script and process and so far I've really enjoyed using it. The LED lights actually doing things on this board completely sold me. However this half ram issue was the only thing keeping me from upgrading u-boot and going more main line Armbian.
    I wouldn't call myself a C programmer at all but from my limited understanding it looks like this adds an additional variable for doing math to size the SDRAM for u-boot to initialize.
    Does anyone here have a contact with ayufan from the git repo (https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-u-boot) so we can get this merged upstream?
    Also, what else needs to be done to get this board in the supported column? I'm happy to help out and contribute in anyway possible. I run two of these boards at my day job so I can even spend a limited amount of paid time if it allows us to keep them updated and running.
