Thanks for responding David, I'm feeling a bit lost here :-)
This is what happens when I run the two commands you mentioned (altered
damian at MythBox:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop
Stopping MythTV server: mythbackend .
damian at MythBox:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start
Starting MythTV server: mythbackendSession management error:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols
specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
damian at MythBox:~$
damian at MythBox:~$ mysql -u root -p < /usr/share/mythtv/sql/mc.sql
Enter password: [ENTER] (for no password)
damian at MythBox:~$
Takes me back to the prompt.
I wondered if this had changed something that needed changing, so entered:
damian at MythBox:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend restart
Restarting MythTV server: mythbackendNo /usr/bin/mythbackend found
running; none killed.
Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the
authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based
I then found this page
which said that the command for debian (that's ubuntu right?) was:
$ mysql < mc.sql
but I've had no luck with that either.
Looked at this page .. http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_Edgy_Installation and the mysql information on there. But it doesn't tie up with my system.
I don't seem to have a directory called 'database'. My mc.sql file is in /usr/share/mythtv/sql. I tried the same commands from that location but I'm still in the same position
I'm trying to get my head around what you said about users and what maybe going on there. I'm not sure where my problem lies any more.
Thanks for helping out David!
