I installed mysql via Homebrew using these instructions http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/installing-ruby-rails-and-mysql-on-os-x-lion.
I also added it to the auto-start by using these commands:
mkdir -p ~/Library/LaunchAgents cp /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/5.5.15/com.mysql.mysqld.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.mysql.mysqld.plist
Since it takes up a lot of RAM I'd like to remove it from the auto-start but don't know how to accomplish this. How can I remove mysqld from the autostart?
launchtl list | grep mysql only gives these entries which can't be removed
