   It looks like you have the server running but dont have any users
in the mysql server try something like:  $mysql -u root   if you just
install mysql via the yum/apt the root users is setup with a null
password.  after you login as root you will need to setup the myth
users and password then you can try something like:  mysql -u mythtv
-pmythtv   and see if you can access the mysql server
