[mythtv-users] MythFrontend as NON-Root user -

Hi i have myth tv just about working, problem is i cant get mythfrontend to
run as a non root user. When i run it for a user i created 'mythtv' who is
in the correct groups and owns /mnt/store, when i do watch tv the command
line tells me the video bitrate, the audio bitrate etc then the next line is
kill. and i have no idea why.

The only thing i could think of was perhaps 'mythtv' did not have
appropriate mysql access, so i granted 'mythtv' admin on the mysql server.
Now when i type mysql as user mythtv i auto get into the DB with admin
rights, however when i now run mythfrontend i get the error that i was
denied access to the database.

Any suggestions much appreciated!
