I don't ever remember having to enable the web player on a setup 
screen.  I've also been migrating my db forward for 3-4 years, so maybe 
it was set many years and many versions ago.
Even if a setup screen that I don't think I ever passed through does say 
that, wouldn't it be better for the error message to actually indicate 
what the problem is? <-- This phenomenon is responsible for driving 
hordes of people away from Linux, and for those it doesn't, it makes 
life harder.  Should be something we strive to eradicate.
Additionally, an rpm dependency would still be sensible too, no?
