I'm guessing you won't see a "YES" in the "Support" column for
"InnoDB". That means that your distro disabled the InnoDB storage
engine--because it saves 40MB of virtual RAM--to make a lean-mean
machine for you and broke your MythTV database in the process. If so:
(And be very careful with the copy/paste of the command to the shell.
It must end with "EOF" as the entire last line--with no added
end-of-line spaces, which copy/paste is likely to put in. So, I
recommend you copy everything except the "EOF" line, then paste it into
a shell, then make sure you're on a different line from the "DELETE"
line and type in "EOF<Enter>".)
Then, enable InnoDB on your mysql server, then restart mythfrontend and
it will re-create the MythWeather tables (and backup will work because
you won't have broken tables).
