I'm hoping someone  can help me. I'm currently struggling to get an
initial mythconverg database setup for svn trunk. I'm getting the
following error:

2009-03-09 19:15:18.762 The database seems to be empty - not attempting
a backup

I read a thread a while back stating that mysql was configured wrong
during compile (in gentoo) and that it left the latin1 flag out. I've
re-compiled with the latin1 flag in. I've also gone into my.cnf and
changed all the utf8 references to latin1. Still no dice.

Any idea whats going wrong here? I'm guessing it has something to do
with character encoding but I can't figure out what...

Thanks much,
