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.

hi wshuman3, thanks for reporting but psmisc it's from base group and it's assumed default installed. same for base-devel group.

This should include psmisc as a dependency, /usr/bin/pihole references killall which is included in psmisc.

I was just wondering if the problem was only on ftl... :-D

same issues as in pi-hole-ftl, the links in the PKGBUILD need instead to be

yes it is! "our" 01-pihole.conf is without dns server and populated during first install. upstream do the same with their install script.

i never replace conf files with .pacnew ones without a check. it's better to "human" merge them with diff like applications.

glad you solved and thanks for reporting.

dnsmasq doesn't do encrypted dns (of any type) only straight udp/tcp port 53.

You would need to use something else (dnscrypt-proxy) for the service of encrypted dns.

I would also recommend quad9 vs cloudflare, but you should do you own homework for your own reasons..

And this would be a forum thing (imho) rather than a package discussion..

So basically what I've done was "mv /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf.pacnew /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf" and rebooted (I think). It stopped working.

Now I just executed "pihole -a setdns" and settings were overridden in pi-hole. Everything started to work fine.

But because I was using cloudflared DOH DNS service on my computer - I might guess it is the root cause, but it is not - I went to pi-hole settings and put cloudflared settings (they are "") and once again everything works.

So probably the root cause was messing with "/etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf.pacnew"... :)

Sure thing. Will check!

@erkexzcx oh, about wiki changes: as stated above the server package is not officially upstream supported as the standalone version is.

max.bra commented on 2019-02-12 08:42

@erkexzcx rev. 3 changes cannot lead to DNS resolution loss. i recommend you to check your .pacnew files and this (
