Parkes has 2 mipsel kernels: 2.6.32-5gnewsense1 from Squeeze and 3.5.3-gnu from GNU Linux-libre. The former is for non-Yeeloong, the latter is for Yeeloong.

On the Yeeloong, iptables works and battery can be queried from /sys/class/power_supply/yeeloong-bat/*.

  • iptables only works on recent linux-libre images (e.g. .33.5 and .34). It wasn't switched on in the config of older versions.
  • Until .32.x the battery status could be checked from the command line with 'cat /proc/apm'. The config files of .33.x and .34 no longer have an apm option, so this doesn't work anymore.
