Thanks unSpawn,

here the results for s2u :

[rob@hpsmall ~]$ which s2u;
/usr/bin/s2u
[rob@hpsmall ~]$ locate s2u
/etc/X11/xinit.d/s2u
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/s2u.conf
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/hostname.d/s2u
/usr/bin/s2u
/usr/share/doc/s2u
/usr/share/doc/s2u/AUTHORS
/usr/share/doc/s2u/ChangeLog
/usr/share/doc/s2u/LICENSE
/usr/share/doc/s2u/README

and here is the content of /usr/share/doc/s2u/README:

This tool is used to send messages between the system and users'
accounts.

For each X11 session a small program called s2u is launched under an
X11 dbus session (using existing one if possible). The s2u program
waits then for dbus messages to take the appropriate actions. The
implemented actions are:

o react to hostname changes to continue to have a working X11 session.
o run update-menus if requested by the system
o display msec notifications
o display custom notifications (netprofile, ...)

For my point of view that is a totally unnecessary program, do you agree ?
But here we got the minstrel for the red box !

Now I'm waiting for next appearance of bluetooth process, I never ever before typed so many times ps ax
meanwhile thanks to everybody looking after me
more if I got the bluetooth process again

I'd say get to know the distribution you use better by just using it to the fullest and doing research. Then there'll be less situations that look anomalous. And I have no opinion about the usefulness of s2u. Only you can determine that and should share the responsibility for potentially breaking things by disabling it ;-p

The reason I asked you to run 'lsmod; grep -r /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.d -e bluetooth 2>/dev/null' in addition is that if anything causes any BT modules to load you can blacklist them.


* Finally I'm moving this thread out of the Linux Security forum and into the Newbie forum as it is more appropriate there in the absence of any security issues.
