Sorry, I momentarily lapsed from "newbie mythtv developer" mode into
"newbie mythtv user" mode.  The big picture here is about what I need
to do to get set up as a developer, but I'm not sure exactly where the
limits of this list's charter are.  Just let me know and I will
respect them.

I read the HowTo and I think I have made progress past the "newbie
user" stage.  Please do let me know if this should be taken off-list
anyway, though.

I got the database started, then I ran mythtv-setup and tried to go
through its screens.

Setup program exits.  

I've already done the obligatory Googling and have come up with
nothing.  I'm not even seeing what's described by

Does this have to do with the fact that I have no capture capability
compiled into MythTv?
