This may help.  From:


, when you ran this:
$ mysql -u root < mc.sql

It included this line:

GRANT ALL ON mythconverg.* TO mythtv at localhost IDENTIFIED BY "mythtv";

, which sets the user as mythtv at localhost and the password as mythtv.  You can try to access the mysql client manually to test it with:

#mysql -umythtv -pmythtv

, which should let you into the client, and give you a prompt, which looks like:


, then try something, like:

mysql>show databases;

, and it should look like:

mysql> show databases;
| Database    |
| mythconverg |
| test        |
2 rows in set (0.01 sec)


, then use quit to exit the client:


If this exercise doesn't work, then the programs that fill the database won't work.  Good luck,
