Hey Rocket!

A few issues with 'mplayer -vo fbdev2' outstanding but it definetly is headed
in the right direction. Hopefully kv-5.9.2 solves all the outstanding
i915drmfb frame buffer device issues. I am regaining confidence that it will
be sooner than later but that remains to be seen.

Speaking of mplayer this works perfectly from an xterm commandline;
mplayer -vo x11 <inset name of AV file here> -zoom
where the -zoom switch MUST be at the end of the commandline in order to
successfully enable the 'f' key in order to switch on|off fullscreen mode.
Works like a charm ... with absolutely no need for an overbloated and extremely
annoying GUI interface.

Life is good,

... Don't cry for me I have vi.
