I ran into this problem when I rebuilt my FE/BE last month on ubuntu 8 (at
that time, an alpha).
According to the notes I scribbled back then, I had traced the problem to a
problem with the Ubuntu package. Specifically, when I did an apt-get
mythtv, apt fetched/installed in the order backend, then MySQL, then
...which should never work, since configuring the backend *requires* talking
In my case (another rebuild), I fixed it by manually getting mysql *first*,
then doing an apt-get mythtv.
But in your case, try
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-common
which should attempt to re-set-up the mysql stuff. Then run mythtv-setup
