mythtv mysql database setup help


Hi all--I'm basically a linux noob here, but I am amazed at the pace I'm picking up tricks, etc. The amount of info on the web on linux is unbelievable. I've been running debian sarge for about a week or two now and last night I tried to install mythtv from the debian repositories. After much tweaking with my sources.list file I was able to down load the mythtv packages and dependances. The problem I am having is the how to I was following, mythtv HOWTO on the mythtv docs page, says for the setup I should:

To setup the initial MySQL databases:

$ cd database

I'm at work right now, and I can't remember the exact wording of the error message but it something like: directory not found or file not found. I don't know anything about sql so I have no idea how to deal with this. Was I maybe supposed to do something with mysql before this point that the authors of the howto might of missed? Any help here would be greatly appriciated.

I'm considering just installing with knoppmyth but I like having debian linux avalable to me is that will be a last resort.

Thanks in advance--Matt

Thanks for helping me find the database, it wasn't in the same place on my box but you gave me the idea of where to look.

so I #cd /usr/share/doc/mythtv-database

now the installation instructions say for debian 3.0 to:

$ mysql < mc.sql

but this command gives me the error file not found. I'm running debian etch with the latest 2.6 kernel in the debian testing repositories.

I have no idea how to start the mythtv database. Anyone have any ideas for me?

http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-6.html is the how-to I am following.

Thanks--Matt

you don't start the mythtv database... you start mysql, which contains the mythtv database.

if you're getting issues of the mysql binary not being found.. i'd assume you've not even got it installed, as it'd definietly be on your path.
