named Starts at Boot Even When Disabled?


Subject pretty much says all: when starting my laptop up, I find that the named service is always started, yet I have the service disabled for runlevel 5. This is, at least, according to the graphical "Services" program available in GNOME under System > Administration > Services, which reports that "named is running" but also shows no checkmark next to the service name.

On this same topic, the services 'nxagent' and 'nxsensor'--services for NoMachine client that I have installed on my system--also start at runtime. Since I do not serve NoMachine sessions from this laptop and only view them, I have no need of these services either. However, they are not even listed in the runlevel editor.

Any idea how to disable these services so that they do not needlessly consume resources? Thanks.

Here is a transcript of a terminal session that was initiated on a "fresh boot" on my laptop. Notice that named is turned off in all runlevels, yet "service named status" shows that it is running...

Code:
[root@celeris ~]# chkconfig --list named
named           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
[root@celeris ~]# service named status
number of zones: 6
debug level: 0
xfers running: 0
xfers deferred: 0
soa queries in progress: 0
query logging is OFF
recursive clients: 0/1000
tcp clients: 0/100
server is up and running
Any ideas what's starting named? I sure didn't start it.

Thanks

check your /etc/rc.local and crontab to see if any of these are starting the DNS server. apart from that I dont see whatelse could be doing it.

I checked rc.local, but there's no evidence of named in that file. That is, however, where my nx* services are being launched from, so I'm glad I checked it for that reason.

But named is still starting for whatever strange reason. Anyone else?
