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?

Then you rerun the script you mentioned earlier - mc.sql I think it was.

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.

When you install mysql or mariadb, the first thing to do is to set the
mysql root password. mysql usually reminds you about that. When you
run "mysql -u root -p" that is the password you need. You can always
set it again using the mysqladmin utility.

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.

The default mythtv database user is "mythtv", the password too. It is
created by the script mentioned above. To run the tzinfo thing to load
the timezone tables, you need the mysql root user password.

Ok, done all that, see the other post.
