Pihole and armbian Bionic dev

Recommended Posts

Today I would give my original Banana Pi (A20 / 1GB Ram) a new life/work and installed for testing armbian Bionic dev with kernel 4.17

(for not trashing my normal Pihole -  a OPi PC2 with armbian stretch)

 

After installing armbian bionic I did try to install Pihole via curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash

but it "crashes" while starting dnsmaq - because it seems to collide with resolved at Port 53

see as reference : https://github.com/pi-hole/pi-hole/issues/2179 

 

After this reference I did edit /etc/systemd/resolved.conf and inserted

DNSStubListener=no

as a active line.

[Resolve]
DNS=8.8.8.8
#FallbackDNS=
#Domains=
#LLMNR=no
#MulticastDNS=no
#DNSSEC=no
#Cache=yes
DNSStubListener=no

(at the webpage above in some messages it says "DNSStubHandler=no" but doesnt work / isnt recognized)

 

After that restart resolvd:
sudo systemctl reload-or-restart systemd-resolved

 

and check that they doesnt collide anymore at port 53 and do start successfully:
sudo systemctl status dnsmasq.service systemd-resolved

 

After they do start successfully restart the Pihole-installation with:

pihole -r

and the installation will complete:

The Bionic update from today my Banana Pi was unbootable with this card (device 0 not found)...

Dont know if it was the update.

ext-filesystem or the card was clean as checked on another SBC....

The BPi is using a good 32GB SD-SanDisk Ultra Card....

 

Would be better to use Stretch as Pihole :(

Hi Guido, I guess you are running armbian Beta ?

I don't know if you followed that Thread, it would be great if you could test it with your pi-hole. A nice stress test :-)

Yes - I did fowwlow this thread - I did wrote there that I increased the log2ram value from 50 to 250MB because of the 1GB Ram of my OPi PC2 (or now original BPi) - so I didnt got a hanging system anymore with this bigger log2eram size - but this wouldnt help a SBC with only 256/512MB of Ram.

Sorry,  I didn't re-read, was a bit late ;-)

However, Igor wrote today: Please pay attention to log rotation service. If that works properly. Starting with today update, current is broken.

 

So it would be great you take the latest and greatest image or switch to Nightly in armbian-config  sudo apt update && apt upgrade  and try again with standard values for log2RAM
