    Red Hat Network


    I would like to disable Red Hat Network to start automatically at boot and to check periodically if any updates are available.
    I tried to disable rhnd service (maybe this is not exactly the proper name) from "Services", but if I reboot I find again the Rhn icon on the panel: after x time, it keeps going checking for updates.
    (Red Hat 8.0).

    Help please! ;-)

    Thank you.

    Check which runlevel that is that is your defaultrunlevel with the command..

    Code:
    runlevel
    The check if the rhn-service is started there..

    Code:
    chkconfig --list |grep 3:on
    Where you replace the 3 to your default runlevel number. If it says on on your rhn-service. Then use chkconfig to disbale it...

    Code:
    chkconfig --level 0123456 rhnd off
