Okay, but I'm still getting the same error:

  2005-12-15 00:03:02.644 Using runtime prefix = /Users/dave/myth/.osx-packager/build
  2005-12-15 00:03:02.797 New DB connection, total: 1
  2005-12-15 00:03:02.852 Unable to connect to database!
  2005-12-15 00:03:02.853 Driver error was [1/1045]:
  QMYSQL3: Unable to connect
  Database error was:
  Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

  2005-12-15 00:03:03.013 Failed to init MythContext, exiting.

I don't know where passwords get set up.

Do I need to separately create this database that the backend is
trying to connect to?
