How to stop the uprintfd daemon?

How to stop the uprintfd daemon? After uncommenting, kill -9 doesn't work on the process either.

EDIT: Nevermind. I've got this now.

Cheers,
DH

That's right. (Sorry)

The answer was in the question for this. The uncommenting with : does it. The service stops on it's own though it will take a moment or two. It respawns if left in /etc/inittab.

So somewhat embarassing, to admit, but resolved nontheless.

Cheers,
DH
