Failed to install Pi-Hole on synology

Hello : )

I am trying to install pi-hole on Synology From this guide:
with the following synology specifications:

Synology DiskStation
Model: DS413j
Version: 6.2.3
CPU: MARVELL Kirkwood 88F6282
Installed on the Synology: Debian chroot

All of the steps described below appear to have been properly installed;

  • apt-get update
  • apt-get upgrade
  • apt-get install locales
  • sed -i 's/^# *(en_US.UTF-8)/\1/' /etc/locale.gen && locale-gen
  • dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
  • apt-get install curl
  • mount /proc
  • cat /proc/mounts > /etc/mtab

I'm stuck at this point --> curl -L | bash

I'm not an advanced user and fairly new user when it comes to pihole. I would love to understand what I am missing.
Thanks in advance.

Also, you can paste images directly into a post.

I am not familiar with Synology installations, but calling the installer via the following command should provide some details as to why it stops for you:

curl -sSL | sudo bash -x

If you can run docker on Synology, this should be your preferred way. Pi-hole has an official docker image.

Hi Bucking,
Thanks so much for the comments, in the meantime I have purchased a new synology and i am trying to install the pihole on it through docker. You can lock the post.

Thanks coro,
This is what I am currently trying to do through a new synology I have purchased, as I have not been able to install a docker before. In the new one I was able to install the pihole but it does not block ads. I will open another post on occasion, only after I realize I have tried all the guides.
