[mythtv-users] Problem with upgrade (ubuntu-packages) after changing the hostname

please help me with  a problem I have when I update (apt-get upgrade)
my ubuntu mythtv packages. 

The problem occurs when the process tries to reconfigure
mythtv-database, the error message is:

Failed to connect to database: Access denied for user'root'@'zeus.local' (using password: NO) at -e line 5, <> line 1.

The user root really does not use a password, but I have changed my
hostname, it's not zeus anymore. I have been looking around and I do not
know where the installer takes the old hostname from, I cannot find it
in any config file. It still can be found in the database, but that
does not seem to make sense if the installer cannot connect to the
database, then he should not have the incorrect value from there!?

Any idea?

Thanks in advance, cheers
