I am pullin my hair out on this one....

I followed Jarod's guide for Fedora Core2 install of mythTV.   I get 
everything to work up to the point of starting up mythbackend and 
mythfrontend for the first time.   I started the mythbackend with no 
error messages... then I start the frontend in another terminal window.  
I get a couple progress bars declaring "pre-scaling of theme images" 
after those finish I get a empty grey background. (kinda like desktop 
image)  It just sits there with nothing... I end up  having to  reboot 
the box using a SSH remote terminal.  Is there anyway to debug this? or 
does anyone have any ideas?

I have tried reinstalling mysqldb and reinstalling mythtv-suite.  Same
