I just heard a few days ago about Pi-hole and like the idea of blocking all of those commercials.
So i installed a VM (centos7) mini 64bits version and done the curl thinghy
I used it on my laptop for dns (used the 18.104.22.168 google dns for upstream dns.) The weird part is that i needed to install dnsmasq? before it was running… but maybe thats my mistake?
then i disabled selinux and tadaa i can use it and login on the admin page.
But now after 2 days testing i noticed to much load issues.
going to youtube i got the loading icon but it stays loading a movie and nothing happens. Only after a few more trying i see a movie.
And on more websites i think thats having commercials/banners the page keeps loading.
I know when you block all the commercials pages should load faster but in reality thats not what happens here. I looks like its trying to load it but because of pihole its loading and loading.
My first experience is not that great i hope i done something wrong. I know i can whitelist some sites but the idea is blocking adds/banners/commercials not to whitelist them
And maybe a totally noob thing to say but what is pihole doing with the banner? is it rejecting or is it making a sort of 127.0.0.1 redirect? in that case it should load alot faster?
