As of v4.0, Pi-hole ships with _FTL_DNS, our fork of
dnsmasq, which should restore compatibility with Raspbian Jessie. We still recommend installing a newer OS as Jessie is EOL anyway.
By default, Raspbian Jessie only supports
dnsmasq v2.72, which does not work with the
log-queries=extra flag, which is required for Pi-hole v3.3+. You may see error messages such as:
dnsmasq: extraneous parameter at line 37 of /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf
There are two options if you can't or don't want to update past Jessie:
- Stay on Raspbian Jessie and run Pi-hole v3.2.1
dnsmasq manually to
For option one, if you already updated to Pi-hole v3.3 and realized it didn't work, you can downgrade your Pi-hole installation:
For option, two you can follow these instructions:
apt-cache policy dnsmasq and if the version is still 2.72 then it is still the older version in the operating system repository.
