I'm trying to connect via Wi-Fi and to do so I have to disable dhcpcd but I couldn't. I tried:

sudo update-rc.d -f dhcpcd disable

But it didn't work I also tried to remove it using:

sudo update-rc.d -f dhcpcd remove

It still didn't work, any idea how to do so?


sudo systemctl stop dhcpcd.service will stop (deactivate) dhcpcd
sudo systemctl disable dhcpcd.service will prevent it from restarting.

Having said the above, I think this is a bad idea. There are a few different network managers in use on Pi under Linux. dhcpcd performs well, and has been chosen by the Foundation for good reasons.

On another point, you should get used to systemd. It is now used by most GNU/Linux distributions. sysV is still partially used, but on the way out.
