ubuntu myth errors


I keep getting these errors. Since I'm a newbi of 3 days now I don't really know what they mean.

E: mythtv-database: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
E: mythtv: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

How are you trying to install mythtv?

When I did it, there was a problem with mythtv-database, due to mysql password problems. Installing the mythtv-database package first and then installing mythtv solved the problem.

IE:
Code:
sudo aptitude install mythtv-database
sudo aptitude install mythtv
Alternatively, the version of Mythtv that comes with Ubuntu is 0.18, which is out of data. Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list to get the latest version:
Code:
# MythTV 0.19
deb http://home.eng.iastate.edu/~superm1 dapper main
deb-src http://home.eng.iastate.edu/~superm1 dapper main
Save the file, and run:
Code:
sudo aptitude update 
sudo aptitude install mythtv
I hope this helps
