ArchLinux Pi-hole is not officially supported by Pi-hole project. In case of bugs and malfunctions please DO NOT file a report upstream.

First of all check if the wiki ( can help then ask here for assistance and tips.
When it will be excluded that the problem does not depend on ArchLinux we will file a bug upstream.

@rosenberg sorry for later reply and thanks for reporting. i tried your url with "vanilla original pi-hole" (debian container) with same results.
It might be worth reporting upstream if you have the time.

Investopedia doesn't seem to work correctly.

For example, go to

  1. Video does not start
  2. Clicking either on "Accept all" or "Reject all" on cookies popup does nothing, and the popup stays there

I use pi-hole with cloudflared.

I appreciate the info, I will compile it on my other Raspberry (same OS architecture that has 8gb ram) and then install it on this one. Once done, ill update how things went. Thanks

Edit: Everything works fine. Compiled correclty on my other Raspberry.

Hi ChuckHL, FTL compilation require nearly 800MB of system RAM. You should create a SWAP of any kind of about 512MB or more. Let me know.

The package patch is also a required dependency:

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

@Taijian Valuable services like spreading misinformation about the software they package? I am running both at the same time and having a good time. Sure, you can't start both daemons with default configuration at the same time because they'll want to bind the same addresses and ports, but that's no more a package conflict than is apache and nginx both wanting port 80. "enough of the functionality" is not, in my opinion, good enough to qualify as a replacement. It has a hard-coded configuration path! I have indeed forked the PKGBUILD, but I still think the one in the AUR should reflect what is objectively correct. Viz., this package neither conflicts with nor replaces dnsmasq.

@rekman: Please try to be nice to your AUR maintainers - they provide a valuable service to the community free of charge.

On the merits: This package does objectively conflict with dnsmasq in that you cannot let them both run at the same time and expect to have a good time. And it does provide enough of the fuctionality of dnsmasq that most software that requires dnsmasq will run fine. To me, that's what these PKGBUILD tags are about - and to the vast majority of users, they work fine. Otherwise more of us would have complained long ago.

If pihole-ftl does not provide what you need, feel free to edit the PKGBUILD to suit your needs. That's allowed, you know.

ok, I see you're taking it personally, I'll stop and hang up
