Sorry, I momentarily lapsed from "newbie mythtv developer" mode into
"newbie mythtv user" mode.  The big picture here is about what I need
to do to get set up as a developer, but I'm not sure exactly where the
limits of this list's charter are.  Just let me know and I will
respect them.

I read the HowTo and I think I have made progress past the "newbie
user" stage.  Please do let me know if this should be taken off-list
anyway, though.

I got the database started, then I ran mythtv-setup and tried to go
through its screens.

Console:

  Qt: QApplication: Warning argv[0] == 'mythtv-setup.app/Contents/MacOS/mythtv-setup' is relative.

    Is the IP address set for it in the setup programm correct?
  
    [I hit OK]

Setup program exits.  

I've already done the obligatory Googling and have come up with
nothing.  I'm not even seeing what's described by
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-9.html#ss9.1

Does this have to do with the fact that I have no capture capability
compiled into MythTv?

Thanks in advance,
