mythtv (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Mythtv-database depends on mythtv-common which requires qute a few X11 and QT packages. Mythtv-database does nothing other than setup a mysql database for use with mythtv. It has no direct dependency on any file inside mythtv-common or anything outside of mysql and it's dependencies.

I have a headless file server which also acts a the mysql server for my home network. I have no need or desire for X11 or any GUI packages to be installed on that machine. I downloaded the mythtv-database package, extracted the scripts and ran them manually with no ill effects to mythtv at all. The dependency on mythtv-common is not required.
