I am running

Linux mop-raspberrypi-01 4.19.42-v7+ #1219 SMP Tue May 14 21:20:58 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

and all tutorials for setting a static IP address for the Pi mention editing /etc/dhcpcd.conf. However, there is no /etc/dhcpcd.conf on my setup. Should I be concerned that I did not set up something correctly or just create it new?

  • why do you need that file? – jsotola Jun 2 '19 at 21:32
  • The config file can be accessed using the following command: sudo nano/etc/dhcpcd.conf – Mohammad Ali Jun 2 '19 at 22:22
  • You have told us what kernel you are using, but we have no idea what OS – Milliways Jun 2 '19 at 22:53
  • @jsotola - isn't that how one configures DHCP client? – Jaromanda X Jun 3 '19 at 2:11

    @JaromandaX While Raspbian may use dhcpcd, it is hardly odd that whatever OS the OP has is using one of the half dozen or so other Linux network managers. dhcpcd is available on most, but not as default. – Milliways Jun 3 '19 at 3:28
