5 instances of RHN applet
Ok...so I'm not all that concerned about having the RHN applet on my menu bar - but I'd like to get rid of the five instances that show up when I run "top" from the command line.
What happens is when I run top, I see all five running. I took the applet off of my menu a few days back, and tried putting it back on (more than once, obviously) - it didn't work.
But when RH boots into the GUI, the pop up window that comes up just after you enter your login information shows the typical components being loaded, but also 5 extra items that are labeled as the applet.
What I want it to only have a single instance running, and make sure they don't all try to load on when I boot. How do I remove the extras?
I'm new, so I've really only done some poking around in the rc files, but can't find what I'm looking for. Where/what file should I edit to get rid of these extras?
Thanks for any help or direction.
EDIT: Well, as usual - I didn't wait for a response. I got rid of the problem by doing the system settings-->add/remove applications, then removing the gnome up2date, and rhn packages. Then I rebooted and came back on, and the problem was solved.
I still can't get the "keys" or the "rhn" icon back, but the latter I'm not worried about.
Nonetheless, I'd like to hear how to fix this w/o going through the uninstall/install method I resorted to.
