Fedora Core 6 Package Updater Running on Startup
I recently installed Fedora Core 6 over a Fedora 5 installation. Under FC5. Under FC5, I would run an application called PUP (Package UPdater) and it would display a list of all packages that needed updating. I found this rather convenient and never had a problem.

Under FC6, I noticed that this utility seems to run automatically on startup. I went into the "sessions" application and noticed a Startup application called /usr/bin/puplet. Is there any way to tell the OS that I don't want this to run on startup and to be sure that puplet is the app that is running?

Thanks in advance for any help.

puplet is the applet for pup. it appears in the "notification area" (in the top right by default). you can disable puplet in your session manager and then use pup at your own convenience. puplet just lets you know when there are updates available and lets you graphically install them.
