it is safe to remove xscreensaver from your startup scripts of course.

how does RedHat start xscreensaver?

BTW your sig is rather bigoted. would you mind changing it? If you want a religious debate you can mail me through this site.

How so?
NO!
I'll make it easier on both of use. If you think you came from a rock "millions" of years ago you are a fool. Evolution has NO evidence to support it so it is a LIE and Creation has all the evidence so it is TRUTH. Plus the KJV of the Bible has NEVER been proven wrong.

According to Evolution dinosaurs are extinct. And man is "Evolving bigger and smarter"
According to Creation dinosaurs have always lived with man. Why do you think there is so many tales of Dragons(Dinosaurs)? Also the Holy Bible says there were Giants in those days, and guess what we are now finding 9-12 foot skeletons of humans.
the Holy Bible says "Prove all thing; hold fast that which is good."

Hitler said, "If you tell a lie big enough, loud enough,
and long enough the people will believe it!" guess what the foundation for Nazism was evolution.

It was Adolph Hitler who said, "Let me control the textbooks, and I will control the state." wow, America went from in God we trust to "I Pledge Allegiance to the Earth"

Look at the media it is almost completely LIBERAL(Democrats ARE Communists, and so are LIBERALS.)
Look at America it is almost a Communist country.

Quote:
The official title of the Nazi party was “The National Socialist Workers Party Of Germany”. The Nazi’s called themselves “The Children of the New Age of World Order”. Those who challenged the Nazi’s power were branded “conservative reactionaries” or worse yet, Christians were condemned as “right wing fanatics”. History teaches us that if we do not learn the lessons of the past we are doomed to repeat those mistakes.

Anyway, anyone know how to remove xscreensaver from startup?

Wordnet: bigoted
adj : blindly and obstinately attached to some creed or opinion and intolerant toward others.


Anyway, look in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d and there will probably be something like S10xscreensaver. you can safely delete this file and it wont start up anymore. The number probably wont be 10 but just delete anything that's got xscreensaver after it.

You should also delete the corresponding K10xscreensaver file.

DONT delete the /etc/rc.d/xscreensaver though.

I'm _GUESSING_ that this is the way that your screensaver is starting, as I dont use RedHat, but no-one else seems very interested. I'll get into other ways of starting xscreensaver if you dont find anything in the startup scripts.


Thanks for quoting me and ignoring the bit that says MAIL me for a debate.

Evolution is a religion of hate and death.
Creation is the TRUTH of love and forgiveness and a Promise of eternal life if you just ask Jesus.

Quote:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6 (KJV)
Quote:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Quote:
1Timothy 2:5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Quote:
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Quote:
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Quote:
Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
I hope this opens your eyes to the TRUTH.

Attention Everyone:

Please steer this thread back on course. It'd surely be a shame to get a thread with good replies locked because of it's lack of Linux relation...

If you want to discuss something Off Topic (the Topic of the board AFAIK is Linux) then head over to General OR email/otherwise contact the participants of said discussion.

Please, I expect no response necessary to my interjection, nor to any comments posted so far; simply continue on as if the only things posted in this thread were the Linux portions.

Thank You!
