I would appear your have a mysql permission problem.  This is external
to the filesystem and cannot be resoved by chmod.  You probably need
to recover your root password first, you can find details on doing
that here:


Once you can access mysql via the command line repeat the mysql
section of Jarod's guide here:


And finally run mythtvsetup, if you still have problems post the mysql
command related output too so we can help diagnose.
