Yes, I checked the file during the install to make sure the values
were set correctly. They seemed OK, so I did not edit it. Currently
I have this in the file:
> cat /usr/local/share/mythtv/mysql.txt|grep -v ^#
Is this where I can tell mythtv my mysql.sock is in /tmp? If so what
is the variable name I should use? DBSocket perhaps?
