How have you tried to install MythTV?

MythTV makes extensive use of a SQL database, and it looks to me like you haven't configured it properly.

Try following the instructions Here. They are not distro specific, so it involves building from source, etc. It is quite straightforward if you follow the instructions step by step.

I hope this helps
