Trying desperately not to rant but am very frustrated by this.
I made the mistake of adding the Weather applet to a toolbar and now I
can't turn it off (tcpdump shows it phoning home).
Right click the applet and unclick Update. No go. Updates anyway. OK.
Remove applet from toolbar. No go. Updates anyway.
OK. Logout/Login. Still insists on updating.
I never reboot. OK, reboot. Still calling home to NOAA. What???
Can't figure out the name of the program that the applet calls so I
can't manually destroy the pestilence. This apparently is not something
considered worth noting in the Help/About links and is certainly not
available from the Add to Panel function.
Where is it registered and how in the !#@$ do I kill it?
Second question is how do we learn the names of the programs that are
invoked by these applets? If I can't learn the name how do I yum
update/remove short of rm -rf /?
This is with Weather Report 184.108.40.206 (/usr/bin/you'll never find me,
Copper ;) on f10.
Bug, idiot, both? (cheap shot accepted)
Sign this wasted way too many hours,
