On a clean install, running mythtvsetup on a virgin database should
update it to the current schema version. Did you see any errors in the
terminal when running mythtv-setup?

If you didn't, check the log output for mythbackend when it starts up
for any errors. If mythbackend starts successfully, run mythfrontend
from a terminal (or redirect its output to a logfile) to check for
errors when that starts up. If you do see any non-obvious errors that
you cannot correct, please post them here with the trimmed logfiles.
