Right - I neglected to put in the mergemaster -p step before
installworld and deleteold/mergemaster ones afterwards... but anyway,
the main point I wanted to highlight was world/kernel dependence, which
fortunately was made clearly enough!
I typically update sources on my 7.0 box about 1-2 times per week, so
I'm religiously following the procedure in UPDATING... the reboot to
single user mode means I have to walk to the other end of the house
(where the 2 noisy servers hide out) to perform the
mergmaster/installworld bits, so it is not too much of an issue (the
thinking being better inconvenient and functional than fast and broken....)!
