I figured out that I had to open the program "mysql" as root

Note that mysql root is not the same as linux root. mysql users are
completely separate from linux users. So put the username on the
command line as Per suggests.

The database is already created. I would have to remove it somehow and
start again.

DROP DATABASE mythconverg.

And then, what do I do exactly?

mariadb is not configured at all. To run the above sql commands, which I think are wrong, I need a password, which I do not know. Then I also need: «This guide assumes you have already installed MythTV, MySQL, created the MySQL user id and set up your backend to automatically start.»

I need to create that "mysql user id", whichever it is. And I also need the tzinfo thing, it also asks for a password.

This is very complex, mythtv should have a chapter on the mysql
configuration. The howto says nothing on it.

I agree it belongs on the howto, I am surprised it isn't there. As
for "complex" - it's no more complex than e.g. wordpress or owncloud or
roundcube, but I guess it might appear complex when you're not used to
to dealing with mysql.

It is indeed. I have to guess and ask what to do, and then it doesn't work.

This is very frustrating :-(
