Help installing mysql again

I was trying to install mysql for mythtv, and I started having issues with the root user not existing or something, and so I couldn't set the root user.

I uninstalled mythtv via portato. Now when I try to emerge mysql, I get this:

Code: Select all

localhost aneesh # emerge dev-db/mysql
Calculating dependencies... done!

Is there any way to fix this so I can install emerge mysql?
