[tlug] Kubuntu 8.04 -> 8.10 Upgrade "Problems"

After downloading and installing Kubuntu 8.10 32-bit desktop on a spare IBM NetVista, I decided to go ahead and install it on the machine that would do the least damage to my everyday routine first --- my ThinkPad R61, currently running 64-bit 8.04. I decided to upgrade rather than install new.

After following the upgrade procedures outlined on the site, I rebooted and ... I see the "This is your PC on drugs" background, but no combobox asking for entering my user ID or my password. I have rebooted using the repair function for the latest kernel, and have run the xorg fix, the dpkg fix, and the cleanup function with no effect on the problem.

Before I D/L a new .iso and make my HDD a virgin again, is there another possible fix from root? Google has not been my friend this time.
