Hi Isaac et all,
I'm finishing a MythTV 'ebuild' for Gentoo Linux.=20
ebuilds are Gentoo's style of packages.
I've just seen that I probably should move the configurable settings
=66rom /usr/share/mythtv to /etc/mythtv or something like that. Since /etc
contents are usually protected between updates, in Gentoo that is.

Other than that, I really couldn't make it work on my system yet.
I have mysql 3.23.53 installed, and did also install the database as for
the documents. Yet when running and MythTV app I get:

QSqlDatabase warning: QMYSQL3 driver not loaded
QSqlDatabase: available drivers:
Couldn't open database
QSqlQuery::exec: database not open
QSqlQuery::exec: database not open

I am an abolute newbie in db like sql, hence I have no idea what to look

Last but not least, anyone from Spain which is aware of Spanish TV
programming's provider in xmltv format?

Oh, if you are interested in the Gentoo ebuilds, check:
which are MythTV, updated expat library and xmltv's ebuilds

PS Congratulations for the fantastic piece of work you've done so far
with mythtv, specially at the pace you release new versions :)
