At some point in the past, I had installed posgresql and I can't get rid of it:
$ ps -A|egrep postg 232 ?? 287 ?? 0:00.02 postgres: logger process 328 ?? 0:00.09 postgres: writer process 335 ?? 0:00.06 postgres: wal writer process 336 ?? 0:00.03 postgres: autovacuum launcher process 342 ?? 0:00.01 postgres: stats collector process
I'd like to stop it from starting up every time I boot, since
fs_usage shows it keeps my disk occupied.
I've already tried adding
/etc/hostconfig, but the processes keep spawing.
Also I've tried something I found on another post, with no luck:
$: locate postg|egrep plist /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.edb.launchd.postgresql-8.4.plist /Library/PostgreSQL/8.3/uninstall-postgresql.app/Contents/Info.plist /Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/uninstall-postgresql.app/Contents/Info.plist /Library/StartupItems/postgresql-8.3/StartupParameters.plist $: sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.edb.launchd.postgresql-8.4.plist (restart)
But still postgresql processes show up :(
