  I'm trying to migrate from oS11.1 (0.21) to Ubuntu 10.04(0.23), I 
have made a backup of the database and gone into Ubuntu , setup the 
initial database, and then dropped it in mysql.  When I try and run the 
mythconverg_resote.pl script I get the following error:

Please check your configuration files to verify the database connection
information is correct.  The files that are used to retrieve connection
information are prefixed with "parsing" in the "Parsing configuration 
section of the --verbose output.

Also note that any [client] or [mysql] password specified in the MySQL 
file (/etc/my.cnf or /etc/mysql/my.cnf or ~/.my.cnf) will take precedence 
the password specified in the MythTV configuration files.

  Now what did I do?
