You don't actually. That you need a window manager at all is, IMHO (and
MHO comes from 5+ years of experience with Myth as my primary and only
TV watching experience and 20+ years of experience with X11 systems) a
myth itself (pun intended). In all of the time I have run Myth I have
not used a window manager and have never had any problems. And that
even includes the time when mythvideo was spawning an external
application like mplayer.

Actually try it. Remove the & from the above and the exec to openbox
below. I guess you'd probably also want to exec mythwelcome.
But you will first have get gnome out of your way. Sorry, not sure how
to do that. Personally, I just never bother installing it all. Linux +
Xorg + *myth*.
