Thanks Brad, I'm doing a fresh install on Ubuntu and did not compile as the
Mythtv user I did it as my regular user so I'm wondering what kind of
problems that is going to create?
Like when creating the mysql.txt in .mythtv it wants a password - well I
don't want to put in the password of the user I installed Myth with as that
would give access to root if comprimised...
Since I've installed as my "regular" user (not sure what to call it) when I
start mythbackend won't that user need access to the DB? so that kind of
creates a problem,,, yes/no?
