is disabled for root after a clean Suse pro 9.1 install, and only
non-root users have a usable X server. This means root cannot run
mythtv, when it is root that creates the database. So potentially the
user given access to the X server differs from the user with database
access, which calls for some additional undocumented steps in getting
