Shutdown

Shutdown MythTV backend and any frontends

/etc/init.d/mythbackend stop

Unmasking

Currently MythTV is masked (~x86) in Portage

Add the following lines to /etc/portage/package.keywords

media-tv/mythtv ~x86
x11-themes/mythtv-themes ~x86
media-plugins/mythbrowser ~x86
media-plugins/mythvideo ~x86
media-plugins/mythnews ~x86
media-plugins/mythmusic ~x86
media-plugins/mythgallery ~x86
media-plugins/mythcontrols ~x86
media-plugins/mythweather ~x86
www-apps/mythweb ~x86

I don't have all of the plugins installed, so add any others that you will need.

mysqldump -p -uroot --all --opt --allow-keywords --flush-logs \
