As user mythtv, executing:
mysql -u root -p < /user/share/doc/mythtv-0.14/database/mc.sql
seems to do nothing at all except ask for the MySQL password. No 
messages on the screen, just exits to a prompt. When I look in 
/var/lib/mysql   I see:
mysql   mysql.sock   test  (test is an empty directory, mysql is 
but no mythconverg ...

Yeah, I thought of that, but:

"rpm -q qt-mysql" says it's not there. "apt-get install qt-mysql" says it 
can't find the package.

synaptic says that I have Qt-MySQL verion 1:3.1.2-14 installed

??? So I don't know if I have it or not!
