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 deemon, yes you can delete those files. left .list files in use are: adlists custom and local.

pacdiff says that there is new /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf.pacnew with gravity.list and black.list removed (compared to current/previous config). Are they no longer needed? can I delete then those .list files also? I assume yes, as I see there new gravity.db side-by-side with the (old?) gravity.list which I assume is the replacement, but just to be sure, asking this.

After this update:

upgraded nettle (3.5.1-2 -> 3.6-1)

pihole-FTL.service doesn't start anymore:

$ sudo systemctl status pihole-FTL.service ● pihole-FTL.service - Pi-hole FTLDNS engine Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/pihole-FTL.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2020-05-09 13:25:44 CEST; 95ms ago Process: 3736 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown -R pihole:pihole /etc/pihole (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 3737 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown pihole:http /etc/pihole/regex.list (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Process: 3739 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown root:root /etc/pihole/logrotate (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Process: 3741 ExecStart=/usr/bin/pihole-FTL no-daemon (code=exited, status=127) Main PID: 3741 (code=exited, status=127)

Downgrade of nettle solved this problem

1) pi-hole-gravity.timer is present in all versions and is statically enabled. All is in auto pilot mode. :-)
2) you can add as many DNS server you want. queries will be forwarded over all of them and if you query an URL that is in your intranet it will be resolved by your internal DNS. I have a similar config for my notebook.

deemon commented on 2020-02-26 09:01

I have this question though... It does say in wiki that the "standalone" version comes with the timer (pi-hole-gravity.timer) but no mention of it in server version. But does it have it also (and just not mentioned in the wiki) or I have to manually update the server filter lists with the server version?

Another question is, would it be possible to make it use DHCP aquired DNS server as the base, not the statically configured with pihole -a setdns for example? PROBLEM is that when I am in my work LAN, we have our own internal DNS (only accessible from corporate WAN) with many internal server names and I would like to use that as base, but when outside building and in external networks, it's unreachable and I would like to use either whatever DHCP provides there or then the statical would be OK also.

Thanks. Now works :-)
