no, sorry. That won't work either.
(You may have come across this before from me - I have posted it a
couple of times.) Months ago, I attempted to install MythTV and all it's
addons. When it got about half way through the installation process, it
asked for configuration; for a MySQL database. I didn't really know what
it was, thought it was some kind of online subscription or something.
Recently discovered it was something actually on my computer - except it
hadn't been in the dependencies list for MythTV when it was installing.
So I _still_ have a half installed MythTV, and no MySQL. I can't install
or remove anything. I tried installing MySQL through source (or whatever
it is when it isn't a .deb - basically unarchiving a gzip and using the
make commands etc), but my computer has NEVER liked that process.
I would be hugely pleased if this could be fixed, although I am due to
build a new pc soon.
