Question Uninstalled Firestarter, but Red Hat still trying to load it during boot


I uninstalled Firestarter from my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 machine, but whenever I reboot the machine, during both the shutdown and startup process, it tells me that the path for firestarter does not exist, which makes sense, since I got rid of it. So, how do I tell the OS to stop looking for it? Thanks for any advice

You could try
Code:
#chkconfig firestarter off
How did you install and uninstall it because it should have removed the start up scripts during deinstallation.

Thanks for the reply, but when i type that in, I get:

Code:
error reading information on service firestarter: No such file or directory
So, I reinstalled Firestarter, typed it in, and this time is seemed to recognize the path, so i uninstalled Firestarter once more, and it went back to looking for it during the bootup and shutdown process.

I uninstalled Firestarter by going to Add/Remove Software in the Applications menu, typing "firestarter", then unchecking the box and hitting Apply. I also have tried rpm -e firestarter. Both had the same result.
