Mariadb Disable Auto Start on Desktop
How to prevent MariaDB from automatically starting up on a desktop is not the same as prior Mysql versions. Instead of using the remove from rc method, you use systemd (systemctl). But there is nothing in the documentation about that.
sudo systemctl disable mysqld
For some reason the MariaDB documentation thinks its a good idea to have the database startup automatically on a DESKTOP! They say “Note that by default MariaDB is configured to work on a desktop system and should because of this not take a lot of resources.” Thats like saying, “My dog’s poop in your garden is no problem because its quite a small poop.” https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/configuring-mariadb-for-optimal-performance/
