[mythtv-users] MySQL start up problem - solved

  Ok, did some more digging.  I was checking the mysql list and guides this 
whole time as well.  Figured it out.  For some reason the startup script in 
rc.d/init was pointing to the wrong database.  Pointed it the right way and 
it starts fine now.

However now Mythtv can't find the database -

mythtv display

2005-10-02 12:44:27.991 Unable to connect to database!
2005-10-02 12:44:27.992 Driver error was [1/1049]:
QMYSQL3: Unable to connect
Database error was:
Unknown database 'mythconverg'

mysql dispaly
/usr/libexec/mysqld: ready for connections

hosts table	mythtv	localhost.localdomain	localhost

I have used the IP, mythtv, and localhost in the database config.  Same 
error as above.

At a bit of a loss.
