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.

I did follow the wiki, I don't have systemd-resolved running. As I said, pihole is running and working, tested with

drill @ TXT

it just seems to stop working as soon as I have nameserver in my /etc/resolv.conf

Hi sonny. Have you followed the wiki? Is ftl working or stops soon after starting? Nothing about systemd dns stub disabling?

sonny commented on 2019-07-26 16:42

Apparently pihole-FTL is reading my /etc/resolv.conf, could it be the problem?

juil. 26 18:41:05 evoli dnsmasq[9452]: reading /etc/resolv.conf
juil. 26 18:41:05 evoli dnsmasq[9452]: using nameserver

I can't make this work. pihole is started and running (drill @ TXT works)

I have name_servers= in my /etc/resolvconf.conf.

But everytime my /etc/resolv.conf looks like nameserver DNS is not working.

Any idea?

@davvore33 yes dig!! updated w/o version bump. thanks for reporting.

davvore33 commented on 2019-02-21 21:56

this package depends on extra/bind-tools too, please update

max.bra commented on 2019-02-21 16:34

@marza ... and yes, you don't need :

$ pihole -a setdns serv_ip1, serv_ip2, ...

unless you need something other than google DNS servers.

max.bra commented on 2019-02-21 16:28

@marza you are perfectly right! thanks for reporting.

  • pi-hole-ftl.service solved, sorry
  • wiki updated

this package deserves more love!

Update: Adding the dnsmasq.conf file manually with just the single "uncommented" line made everything work!

Except the setdns command, but I didn't really need it for anything but testing if it worked.

Now maybe the wiki entry should be updated to reflect that both versions use pihole-ftl and that the conf file might not be created automatically? And should it be made automatically (why not?), and if so, is this an upstream issue?
