5 instances of RHN applet 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.

killall redhat-network-applet (or whatever it's called)
go to the session properties, remove it from the session.
log out. log back in. restart it. Should be fixed.

For that matter kill it and replace it with apt-get. See the link in my sig for more info. Far easier and better than the RHN applet..
