Hi Analabha

Did you follow Jarod's guide _to the letter_ on a completely new
installation of FC3? I've followed it though several times on
FC2/3/4/RHEL4 and not had any problems this early on in the install
(although I am not in the US so use a different grabber).

Make sure the myth themes package is installed (you are using
atrpms.net for packages?) and that you follow every section in the
guide through, in order, paying special attention to MySQL.When you
state you reinstalled the mythconverg database, what exactly did you
do? This should happen automatically.

For your audio, make sure the permissions are OK and try using
/dev/pcm and /dev/mixer as your audio device/mixer.
