I recently tried to install and configure amarok on my myth box. I never had any trouble with the mysql database before, but after set up all my recordings in myth have disappeared and mythbackend keeps quitting on me.

During the configuration for amarok I followed the
instructions at


for configuring amarok to use mysql.

I set this up using

$ mysql -p -u root
USE mysql;
GRANT ALL ON amarok.* TO mythtv at localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'secret';

Note that I used mythtv at localhost since there is no amarok at localhost on
my myth box.

Long story short I don't seem to be able to build my music collection in
amarok, but even worse than that when I start the mythtv frontend, all
my previous recordings have disappeared and the mythbackend process
keeps stopping on me.

What have I done wrong? How can I put things back the way they were? How
should I be configuring amarok to use mysql without impacting
