This looks to me like line 61 of /etc/init.d/mythbackend is calling /
etc/init.d/function, which is failing at line 41 because it can't
find a command or function called "daemon".
Can you post the output of `for foo in /etc/init.d/mythbackend /etc/
init.d/function ; do grep -C 1 -e functions -e daemon $foo ; done`,
My distro has a package called "daemontools" - is it possible you can
install this on your system?

Where did you get `/etc/init.d/mythbackend` from? Was it packaged
with the MythTV source you downloaded? Did `/etc/init.d/functions`
not come with it? is it possible that your t`/etc/init.d/mythbackend`
is left over from a previous installation?
