I don't want to see the intrusive elogind display
that comes after the login prompt but before
I can log in. I tried chmoding -x the entry
in /etc/rc.d but that didn't kill the daemon.
Just removing execute permission from the rc.d file does nothing to the
currently running daemon.
Removing execute permission from the rc.d file just stops the daemon
from being launched the next time you reboot.
If you want to kill the running daemon, then you should kill the
daemon. See the "kill" command.
Also, the rc.d file you changed likely takes parameters:
start - starts the daemon
stop - stops the currently running daemon
So what you should have done is:
before you did a "chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.elogind"
The first would stop the running deamon. The second would stop it from
launching again after the next reboot.
Note, I'm assuming the rc file name was "rc.elogind" above, you didn't
say here, and for this message the above is enough for you to adapt the
details to the exact name.
