Reboots are needed - What Boris is stating (and I agree) is frop the
other crap your doing. IE:
"2. After installkernel, I rebooted to single-user mode
with the new kernel, adjkerntz -i, fsck -p, mount -u
/, mount -a, swapon -a, /usr/local/bin/bash and follow
your steps until make installworld."

KDE has nothing to do with this, unless you have /etc/ttys hacked to
start kdm on boot OR you are using root as a common user.
If KDM is not being used, loggin in as root provides a shell - this is
what you ought to be doing.
I hope you not logging in a a user (into KDE) then doing your upgrade in
a term as root.

Actually R2 has been known to make mistakes - from time
