After booting into the minimal install CD and trying to connect tot he Internet:
Code:
# dhcpcd eth0


The following error is returned:
Code:
dhcpcd[20015]: open '/var/run/dhcpcd.pid': No such file or directory


What could I do to resolve the message? This is the first time I've ever encountered this problem while using the minimal install CD. Thanks for any help!

try system rescue cd instead. the minimal seems to be in disarray at the moment. boot sysresccd to the xfce4 gui and use network manager, icon in the lower right of desktop.

I can confirm this. I went back through my archive and a minimal cd/iso from 2012-06-21 is working fine here.

This is the same issue that is being discussed here. The current solution is to use SystemRescueCd.

Or just: mkdir /run
The minimal cd image lacks /run. /var/run is just a symlink to /run, thus the failure.
