Well unfortunately I have not yet heard back from the pine support team.

The Pine device that I received should have 2GB memory but unfortunately only appears to have 1GB.

Code:
[[email protected] ~]$ cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:        1002164 kB

The box states that the device should be 2GB as well as the text on the board.

Any advice?
Does it have chips on the bottom of the board? If so then it is a 2GB board. What kernel are you on? Pics of the various boards http://linux-sunxi.org/Pine64

uname -a

There are two chips on the bottom of the board.

You installed a Kernel which does not support 2GB - in fact you installed my very first Kernel release from ages ago. Only you can answer the why. See http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=293 for Kernel history.

Ah okay thank you.
Would really like to use Arch but think I'd have issues getting the latest kernel and HW acceleration for video.

Why? There are no issues getting latest Kernel and U-Boot with my Arch image. I do no longer create new images and make no promises about anything but as of now you can of course update Kernel and the bootloader to latest and only miss the packaging stuff i do for Ubuntu. See http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=343

Ah no I'm not saying there's anything wrong with them, just my abilities to do so Wink

e.g.  running the update scripts and having issues
Code:
[[email protected] ~]$ sudo bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_uboot.sh)
bash: /dev/fd/63: No such file or directory

[[email protected] ~]$
[[email protected] ~]$ sudo bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_kernel.sh)
bash: /dev/fd/63: No such file or directory
[[email protected] ~]$ (23) Failed writing body

*fixed, was running it with sudo and not as root
Well I am pretty sure that I said somewhere to run these commands as root. Sudo is not sufficient.

Yep, you do indeed but my brain is hardwired to use them interchangeably Smile
Thanks for your help, I'll try to get fbturbo HW acceleration working now.

I'm running into the same issue (only 1GB detected in the 2GB model) and I found this thread via Google.

I followed your instructions to install the new kernel, but after upgrading it can still see only 1GB:

Code:
[email protected]:~$ uname -a
Linux pine64pro 3.10.102-0-pine64-longsleep #7 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jun 17 21:30:48 CEST 2016 aarch64 GNU/Linux
[email protected]:~$ cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:        1003836 kB
MemFree:          778320 kB
Buffers:            9492 kB
Cached:           120692 kB

I'm assuming there's something I'm doing wrong or that I missed some step somewhere. Could you let me know what you'd need from me in order to troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance,
