MythTV Setup: error while loading shared libraries: libjack.so.0


I'm trying to get MythTV up and running. I download the mythtv-0.20-i486-1kjz.tgz file from linuxpackages.net, and install it with installpkg.
However, when i run mythtv-setup I get the following error:
Code:
bash# mythtv-setup
mythtv-setup: error while loading shared libraries: libjack.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I tried to google libjack.so but I can't figure out were to download this shared lib. from. Where can I get this file from or what package does that file belong too.

Thanks,

djgerbavor3

you have to install jack. here it is for slack 10.2 http://www.linuxpackages.net/download.php?id=7606
if you want it for version 11, you might have to compile it yourself

thanks for the quick reply...i'm now getting a different error. Do you know of a good mthtv installation or setup guide for slackware. Or have you got MythTV up and running? Anyways the error i'm getting now when I run mythtv-setup is this.
Code:
QSqlQuery::exec: database not open
QSqlQuery::exec: database not open
2006-10-09 00:10:04.847 DB Error (KickDatabase):
Query was:
SELECT NULL;
No error type from QSqlError?  Strange...
2006-10-09 00:10:04.903 Database not open while trying to load setting: UseVideoModes
2006-10-09 00:10:04.904 Total desktop dim: 1280x1024, with 1 screen[s].
2006-10-09 00:10:04.905 Unable to connect to database!
2006-10-09 00:10:04.905 Driver error was [1/1045]:
QMYSQL3: Unable to connect
Database error was:
Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YE
I know this is a mysql problem, but is there a script i need to run that setups up a mythtv database user, or do I need to create it.

Thanks for your help

You have to set up the initial Mysql database

http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-6.html

The command you're looking for is probably (mc.sql file may be at another location):

Code:
$ mysql -u root < /usr/doc/mythtv-0.20/database/mc.sql
