[mythtv-users] Mythtv backend not starting

I googled a bit for it, and noticed that many people thought (don't know 
if they're correct) it was caused by the connection to MySQL. But all 
that I found was related to Myth, so it would seem the error is 
generated by Myth, and probably when it's trying to connect to MySQL. 
Unfortunately nobody seemed to have a solution for it, and most of the 
people didn't have it as a "problem", their problem was something else, 
and that was just a curiosity. Sorry I couldn't be more of help, and the 
log files would be useful, also did it print anything to the screen 
after that error ?
