I'm guessing you have a multi-core system... You'll almost always need
to pin mythtv-setup to a single core when doing a channel scan. See
but adjust for your distro. Basically, you'd launch mythtv-setup with:
taskset -c 0 mythtv-setup

When you exit mythtv-setup, it shouldn't "go on." After that, you
should start mythbackend, then mythfrontend, then go into mythfrontend
and configure its settings.

That's not a problem. Really, mysql.txt is deprecated, so not having
one means your system is more up-to-date than 99.999% of users systems
(who still have old garbage from old installs).

Looks like you're ready to continue on from here.
However, if it were me (because I'm a bit compulsive), since you've no
data to lose, I would redo the initial setup (pinning mythtv-setup to a
single core). To do so, just log into your mysql database as root and
issue the command, "DROP DATABASE mythconverg;" (no quotes). Then, exit
mysql, and re-run the mc.sql script (
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-6.html#ss6.2 ). Then run
mythtv-setup and configure the system, then exit, then run mythbackend,
then mythfrontend and adjust settings as required.
