it's not explained well in the documentation from the mythtv install
directory run the following commands
it will generate the gui and allow you to setup the backend once you
have finished you will be able to run mythbackend
> in mythfrontend Setup->General the first screen says myth can't connect to
> the database.
> I filled in:
> Host 127.0.0.1
> Database mythconverg
> User mythtv
> Password mythtv
> and Database Type was set as MySQL.
> I think these are correct:
> [mythtv at mediaserver ~]$ mysql -umythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
> Reading table information for completion of table and column names
> You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A
> Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
> Your MySQL connection id is 41 to server version: 3.23.58
> Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
> mysql> show tables;
