Minimal cli wifi on Pinebook Pro

Does the Manjaro minimal-cli installation contain everything required to get wifi working?

I’ve finally got the Manjaro ARM minimal cli OS installed but cannot connect to my wifi network.

ip link show wlan0 shows state is DOWN.

ip link set wlan0 up seems to do nothing and the state still shows as DOWN when I check.

Working through the arch wiki, I keep going back to the very first steps which ask about wifi drivers. Does the minimal cli include wifi drivers for the PBP?

I expected that the minimal cli would require some work to get running, but I’ve hit a couple of hurdles in a row and am feeling quite out of my depth (and a bit stupid).#

[Edit: This has been moved from ARM to the Hardware Forum … just a reminder that I’m using Manjaro ARM minimal CLI on a Pinebook Pro.]

i stumbled upon this post while trying to get my minimal manjaro-arm install up and configured.
Not sure how helpful it is to you since it’s been a while since you posted, but here it is anyway:
