You do the same thing it says to do in the MySQL guide. There are no special instructions for the R-Pi.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Not sure about the set schedule part but what I do is use the XBMC library export to a single file to backup my XBMC library. Very easy to re-import the library again if needed.

XBMC Frodo 13.2, Transparency Skin (6.0.7)
PogoPlug v4 running Arm Linux 3.16 as MySQL (mariadb) server.
Mac OS X 10.9.5
2011 27" iMac 3.4 GHz Quad, 16GB RAM, 1TB HD, 256GB SSD
2009 2.0GHz MacMini, 4GB RAM, 320GB HD
2009 17" Macbook Pro, 8GB RAM, 500GB HD

IMPORTANT:
Don't use MySQL 5.6 like it says in the Wiki - I ignored that and drove myself crazy. 5.5 works like a champ.

Could a moderator *please* close this thread?

No necromancing!
way too old of a thread, outdated and all information relevant to what this was is now in the wiki...so this now only serves to cause confusion and frustration, it still refers to the Lifehacker page.
Please...

Thank you,
