Humm, mythtv was built from the tarball.  mysql was from the F8 rpms. I'll 
check the mythtv Makefile.  No joy there, and /etc/my.cnf says the user=mysql

Do I need to add another user, such as mythtv and assign that user a password?  
Or assign mysql a password?

I did the latter as mysql existed in the passwd file, but the same error 
results:

[root coyote etc]# passwd mysql
Changing password for user mysql.
New UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
[root coyote etc]# mysql -u mysql -p
Enter password:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'mysql'@'localhost' (using 
password: YES)
[root coyote etc]# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: 
YES)

Does anyone know the default msql passwd so I can set it back?

Still bumfuzzled.

Thanks.
