Building fom SVn does not automatically put a start-up script into
/etc/init.d. I don't know if the .19 RPMs do that. If you do not have

In the mythtv/contrib folder, you will find a number of contributed
scripts, one of which is called:
There is also a etc.sysconfig.mythbackend.
These should be copied to the correct place and 'turned on' with chkconfig.
