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.
The options for installing stuff are really the package manager or
building it from source. Just to encourage my laziness in not going
looking for previous threads: what is the output from aptitude when you
ask it to install stuff (or remove mythTV)?
