[mythtv-users] NEWBIE QUESTION--Backing up database from command line and other dumb questions

THrough a combination of stupidity and tiredness I have mucked up my
system to the extent where the GUI doesn't start.
My system was running fine using the latest version of UBUNTU Jaunty
Jackalope because i needed the drivers to support a WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2
and they are included in the latest kernel.
Stupidly I have applied a partial update and now the screen goes to
snow when I start. I have spent a few days applying updates as they
come out but I now realize that discretion is the better part of valor
and that a reinstall is going to work better.
Now I have lots of recordings which I would like to save so I would
like to back up the database reinstall an OS. (Perhaps not vanilla
UBUNTU any suggestions?).
The Kernel is on a separate partition as are all the recordings.
Any help appreciated.
