The service fails to start for me, it returns "ERROR: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: No such device (errno=19)" however $ls /dev/net/ shows that it is there?

edit: apparently this is some combination of openvpn and kernel. pacman -Syu & reboot fixed it

Also, according to I am not using the DNS servers assigned when I do $pia-tools -g, any clue why?

sha256sum is broken for me too. I'm getting the same 2f111701 pia-tools-1.0.tar.gz as Big-B.

Wonderful, but I also had the unzip error this time, I had installed over year ago perfectly fine.
Recheck line 256 of pia-tools
I modified it "unzip -d /etc/openvpn/pia/ -q -o /etc/openvpn/pia/" in usr/bin/pia-tools.
But it obviously won't update automatically via systemd this way.

Nice work!
There is an error with the unzipping, had to do it manually.
Maybe you also want to modify the .ovpn files afterwards for automatic autentification, e.g. add auth-user-pass auth.txt
