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.

(sorry for multiple messages) of course, as a container, the kernel is different (5.15 proxmox debian based), but honestly don't think it could be relevant in this context. in my experience with pi-hole, the additional layer of variability inserted by a container can only make things worse and not better

... (forgot) with DHCP enabled via web app

max.bra commented on 2024-06-16 12:36 (UTC)

nope, that is a fresh proxmox archlinux container installation with copy/paste config from wiki

@max.bra, did you use any additional configuration other than enabling the DHCP server?

there seems no problems here...

Is there any way to get a builtin DHCP server working? It seems to be broken with no work around...

@munir0b0t hi and thanks for reporting, anyway. pihole packages have nearly 10 years of testing and building experience. how can it be possible to forget a dependency like 'patch'?

munir0b0t commented on 2024-05-10 20:16 (UTC)

Please add patch a build dependency of the package. It's not installed as a dependency of git, and the build fails without it.

Is there a way to force pihole to reread the /etc/pihole/setupVars.conf file? I just had an issue where after an update and reboot, my network interface names changed, so I had to change that file to match my current interfaces, but reloading/restarting pihole-FTL (via systemctl reload/restart pihole-FTL) didn't cause pihole to start listening on the correct interface, only localhost. I found the line in the dnsmasq conf file (located at /etc/dnsmasq.conf.d/01-pihole.conf), but it was still set to the previous interface. I was able to manually comment it out and restart pihole to fix the issue, but...?? that conf file clearly says not to update it manually.

I saw online from old forum posts that pihole -r or pihole reconfigure would do this, but the Arch version doesn't seem to support that flag, though that could just be because it's an old deprecated flag or something.

@kikislater I believe the reason for rate limiting is to help protect against DDOS/Denial of Service attacks. If you're only accessing pihole from your LAN, you're probably fine
