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.

@graysky public service accomplished :D

@max.bra - Think of it as a public service :D

@graysky i will but this is a generic linux configuration issue that has nothing to do with pi-hole.

graysky commented on 2018-11-28 09:05

@max.bra - You might want to comment on that github issue. I found it by googling the error so it's reasonable to think that others will too.

Also, filesystem-2018.8-1 ships with an empty /etc/hosts

max.bra commented on 2018-11-28 08:00

yes but that comments are not correct.

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by resolvconf
search domain.local

assuming 'archpi' as the local hostname

$ cat /etc/hosts           localhost.domain.local   localhost
::1                 localhost.domain.local   localhost

<lanip_v4>          archpi.domain.local     archpi
<lanip_v6>          archpi.domain.local     archpi is localhost and should never be the hostname

edit: corrected localhost domain

This is affecting out package:

% pihole -g
  [✗] DNS resolution is currently unavailable
  [i] Time until retry: 85

The solution is to add an entry to /etc/hosts BUT doing so breaks the ability of the webui to resolve local IP addresses to local hostnames, at least with my setup.

hi lmhp82, do you have some free ram memory and/or some swap? it seems you have reached some kind of limit in your box.

free -m
ulimit -a

will help you to find out your problem.
