When I fire up Kubuntu Intrepid, some daemon is started which phones home to
get notifications of available updates. This was verified when I tried to
run "apt-get update", and was told that there was an active lock on accessing
the file. I tried again, when gkrellm showed the incoming traffic had
stopped, then "apt-get update" ran ok.
I've looked in synaptic, and packagekit is not installed, update manager
doesn't show any references to update daemons in it's installed packages, and
kde doesn't show anything either.
Looked in KDE's system settings > service manager, and can't see anything
there, unless I'm missing something.
Also Looked in sysv-rc-conf, but nothing resembling an updates daemon is
Just booted Ubuntu Intrepid for comparison, and that is also searching for
updates, but there is an applet icon for it in the top taskbar. Right
clicking on that gives a drop down menu, then clicking preferences, then
updates, there is a checkbox "Check for updates", which I'm just about to
uncheck, but on Kubuntu Intrepid, there isn't even an applet icon that I can
right click on to stop this checking for updates on bootup.
Anyone any idea where else I might look to stop what appears to be an updates
All a bit bizarre.
