Comment(by Bill Southwell <chimera_god at yahoo.com>):

 OK, got that problem solved, but now have an R5000 specific one.  Starting
 the backend:

 2008-11-05 15:13:56.219 MythBackend: Starting up as the master server.
 2008-11-05 15:13:56.224 New DB connection, total: 2
 2008-11-05 15:13:56.225 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host:
 2008-11-05 15:13:56.429 R5kLib: R5000 initialization failed at stage 1:
         Expected 1 bytes, but got -1 bytes

 2008-11-05 15:13:56.431 R5kLib: R5000 failed to locate any R5000 devices.
 Are you sure you have permissions set properly?

 Right, so I set permissions of /dev/bus/usb/003/005 to 666.  But next time
 I boot it's at /dev/bus/usb/001/003, or somewhere else.  Is there anything
 that can be done?

 So now permissions are right and I stop/start the backend:
 2008-11-05 15:26:36.640 R5kLib: Could not locate R5000 device with serial

 2008-11-05 15:26:36.642 R5kDev: Failed to open R5000 device
 2008-11-05 15:26:36.650 MythBackend, Error: No valid capture cards are
 defined in the database.
                         Perhaps you should re-read the installation

 LOL, pffffffffffff

 In Setup|Capture Cards Serial Number is a pulldown, and it's blank.  It
 won't let me fill in its serial number, and apparently it's not
 autofetching it.  I can't find where in ~/.mythtv where I could enter it
 manually.  So I'm stuck I guess.

 Kubuntu 8.10final, R5000 in a ViP211.
