I recently had to reboot and the autoupdater loaded at startup. My bad, I permitted the system to install its updates. I'll spend several months now learning how to clean up and cleaning up damage from this last batch of updates. Like I said, my fault, I never allowed Microsoft to autoupdate a system, why would I let Fedora?
My terribly important question first of all is containment. How do I permanently disable this package updater? In a word I want it GONE. No sense cleaning up if the next time the system crashes I have to do this again.
Second, can I roll back a version of a program? Pigdin now times out of some logins and will not log me into others. I know Pigdin is a package, so I'm guessing I can go get an older version and reinstall from scratch. Any idea where to find one?
Third how do I get rid of dead links to media? FC8 has never recognized my floppy drive properly but it now installed a dead link to the floppy on my desktop and I can't delete it.
How do I roll back screen savers? I once spent a couple of hours renaming the screen savers I did not like so the they wouldn't be recognized by the random screen saver module. Now the ones I wanted are gone and a random selection of system locking open GL ones replaced them.
How do you get SELinux not rolled anything, but as GONE as I want the autoupdater to be?
But again, my critical first step is making sure this does not happen again. How do I kill any and all update features?
