[mythtv-users] ATRPMS mythtvsetup in wrong RPM?

	Hello all.  Good news is I've been having enough fun with mythtv to 
decide to make a standalone frontend.  Bad news is I forgot how much work I put 
into building the original backend/frontend.  I ended up compiling just about 
everything (except for the xmltv stuff) from source.  Not too bad on the dual 
PIII-933, but the slave box I'm building is just a Celeron 366->550, so I'm 
trying to go with rpms.

	Here's the dillema:  All the kernels, lirc, mythfrontend rpms installed 
(although I did have to 'apt-get remove redhat-artwork'... removing the 
kde.redhat bleck from /etc/apt/apt.sources didn't help).  Problem came when I 
tried to set up the frontend to point to the other backend.  Not mythtvsetup 
program found.  It's part of the backened rpm, I think, so I had to get all the 
xmltv B.S. which relies on it as well.

	Is there any reason mythtvsetup couldn't be a standalone rpm or grouped 
with the frontend?  It seems like a bit of an oversight to have to install all 
the backend apps for just a frontend.  Am I missing something?

	The main reason for the issue is the drive I'm using is only a leftover
4.3 GB drive.  Fedora + mythtvrpms fills that quickly.
