I wonder when someone installs Optware in /mnt/us/ (NOT /opt partition), is there still a chance of bricking KT? <- well there is always a chance, but roughly let's say just because of disk space issue.

A request (hawhill or danik maybe?!):
I installed ipkg and 6-7 packages following the OP instructions (not danik's ones), and after removing all the packages, there are still a lot of packages left in various folders inside /opt!!! How can someone completely remove them safely? (ALSO, I believe 'ipkg remove mypkg' doesn't remove all the files it installed (which sucks) and leaves empty folders behind too!
I have attached my KT's freespace, I wonder if I am Ok, compared to other people's free spaces?
