Ratpoison SET ME FREE :)

For those who really don't see the need to run a window manager, but have 
the mplayer focus issue, give ratpoison a try.  I tried almost every window 
manager and could not get any of them tweaked just right.

After installing ratpoison I just added /usr/bin/ratpoison & to my .xinitrc 
and now it all works flawlessly :)  No config files, no tweaking, it 
menubars, titles, or borders.  Best of all, using mplayer to watch external 
videos works without much hassle.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the pointer.


One happy camper mythtv owner.
