Description (last modified by mdean)

I have installed mythtv, and mysql. After creating the initial database, mythtv-setup can not find the tables it needs.

Steps to reproduce:
1) regenerate the database:

[cedric@tvpc ~]$ mysql -u root -p
Enter password: 
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 13

mysql> drop database mythconverg;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.08 sec)

mysql> CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS mythconverg;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> GRANT ALL ON mythconverg.* TO mythtv@localhost IDENTIFIED BY "mythtv";
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.05 sec)

mysql> GRANT CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES ON mythconverg.* TO mythtv@localhost IDENTIFIED BY "mythtv";
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> ALTER DATABASE mythconverg DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> quit
Bye

2)Run mythtv-setup:

Fix the check to see if we have a valid DB schema.

Change the code that checks to see if we have a schema available so that
it doesn't use a count of the value returned by QSqlDatabase::tables().
The tables() function returns a list of all tables visible to the
user--even tables in other databases--so can result in false positives.

Refs #9742.
