If you imported the initial mc.sql from the mythtv db directory, then 
you have a database mythconverg, with a mysql user mythtv, password 
mythtv, which is what mythtvsetup uses. All should be fine there.

Your initial message actually indicates the problem may be that you 
don't have the qt-mysql package installed. What does "rpm -q qt-mysql" 
return? If nothing, then "apt-get install qt-mysql". Not sure why it 
wouldn't be on there though... :-\
