Wow, stumbled onto Alt-F the day it hit R3. I have been using fun_plug for years now. Fairly seamless install onto a DNS-323 revB1. I used the flash install, truly beautiful.
Yes, there is a bit of a wait for the deep checking of the hard disks, valid reasons to wait are acceptable.
I had static IP prior. Using ssh-keyscan -t rsa 192.168.1.199 and then editing ~/.ssh/known_hosts and I was in business of acessing via ssh. Sweet. Ssh key now in flash memory I believe.

After playing around, I cleared out /mnt/sda2, turned off the DNS and then restarted and formatted /mnt/sda2 to ext3 with a deletion of the /mnt/sda4 the partition. Very smooth. I reinstalled Alt-f and also installed FFP_0.7 I could still ssh into the DNS. Of course I added under FFP less and man. After a shutdown and restart the command "man less" gives me a man file for a FFP binary - but "man parted" for the Alt-F binary yields nothing. That is good. "ipkg info parted" yields the proper response.
I can wait for ncdu and fdupes to make it to FFP_0.7 or maybe try compiling. A pox on unison and it's huge difficulty to compile. I did get ocaml once to compile, but over the last > 1 year I had no luck and saw no one else with luck compiling it. Back to rsync for me.
1. Is it a good rule of thumb to always go with the Alt-F .ipk's versus the FFP .ipk's? Saying it another way, my guess it that the binaries in flash in bin should always be the only version of that binary. When faced with a choice of a binary that would reside in /mnt/sda2/Alt-F/usr/bin versus a binary that would reside in /mnt/sda2/ffp/bin I would go with the Alt-F version - even if it is older than the ffp version.
