   So is your mysql server running (try  #/sbin/service mysqld status)
if your server is running then you can try to login manualy with a
command like:  $mysql -h localhost -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg  If
you can log into the mysql server then your goldin. if the server is
not running, what are the logs?  can you reinstall mysql (uninstall &
reinstall)?  do you have anydata in the mysql server at this time?

   let me know
