How to disable startup programs


how do i disable startup programs in fedora 11.
actually pulseaudio sound system starts up every time i log in. It interferes with the vlc media player running on wine 1.1.13(compiled from source). i killed the pulse audio process, and every thing works fine, but i have to do it every time i log in

I think following should work. Something like:

System->Preferences->Sessions->Startup Programs

Uncheck the Pulse Audio. Hopefully next time it will not start.

Firstly I think you should not worry about disabling them to free memory if you have sufficient memory (1GB or higher).

If you really want to disable, I think you can disable all of them (one by one) and see what happens. I dont think they will screw your system badly. Only some things will stop working. You will be able to recover (i.e. start them again).

(Disclaimer: I have not done this before so dont believe in my suggestion without caution)
