> Just playing around and took a ubuntu mate 18.04 system with no previous
> Mythtv on it and tried to install Mythtv v31 using the ppa:mythbuntu/31
> The install went fine and after rebooting and stopping the backend, I
> tried to run mythtv-setup and it failed to connect to the database. I
> have not had this issue before.  I've moved the cursor over to setup and
> tried to see what I could do. The hostname was localhost and that is
> what it should be, so as a test I changed it to the real IP address for
> this system.  Still would not connect.
> I do not know if this is because v31 is a development version or
> something else.  My LAN does have 2 production backends on it; one v30
> on Ubuntu server and one v30 on Raspbian Buster.
> Anyone know what I missed? I don't normally have to do anything on a
> fresh install if it's a combo backend and frontend.
