Anyone else notice that Mythtv stopped working after the last round of lib updates in 9.10? This is on an x86_64 system. When the frontend is started in immediately goes to a configuration screen. Taking all the defaults and then trying to exit produces an error that "it couldn't ping the localhost for the database". Ping on localhost does work though.

Any simple solutions here other than trying to rebuild the world from source? On reason I prefer running Ubuntu (or Kubuntu in this case) is that hopefully all the updates and such are provided in binary format and I don't have to try and maintain apps from source.

Thanks!
