Hi - does anyone have any idea what might be causing this error
(debian unstable 2.6.10 kernel) while trying to set up mythtv?

the mysql db seems to be up - i've been able to set a root password
for it, and verify that it works using mysql .... but mythtv-database
doesn't seem to be able to use it. any ideas?


Setting up mythtv-database (0.16-1) ...
Failed to connect to database: Can't connect to MySQL server on
'borzoi' (111) at -e line 5, <> line 1.
Failed to create database (incorrect admin username/password?)
If you supplied incorrect information, try:
dpkg-reconfigure --force mythtv-database
dpkg: error processing mythtv-database (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mythtv:
mythtv depends on mythtv-database (= 0.16-1); however:
 Package mythtv-database is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing mythtv (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
