I have a fresh installation of Arch Linux.
During the install I used
wifi-menu to connect to wifi. After the installation I tried to use it and it said I needed to install
dialogs to use it - which wasn't possible because I currently had no access to the Internet.
As a side note the laptop I use is a Sony Vaio Pro 13. It doesn't have an Ethernet connection because it's so thin. So I am forced to use wireless.
I have read the docs and attempted to use
netctl but it fails to connect and returns an error that I need to install
wpa_supplicant - Again I can't install because I cannot connect to the net.
What other solutions do I have available in order to connect to my access point so I can download the necessary packages?
iw is not installed. It also appears
ipconfig are not installed, which doesn't seem right.
