As previously mentioned, you need ~/.mythtv/config.xml, not the 
deprecated mysql.txt.

Start mythfrontend on the system and it will create one for you.  Or, 
use the example in the source package and edit it yourself (though the 
first way is recommended, and I can't see any reason why someone 
shouldn't be able to just start mythfrontend).
