(6) Could not resolve host


Hello. I have tried to search for a post that describes my problem but have not been able to find one, so if there is a fix for this already please let me know and sorry for doubleposting.

I am trying to curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.picadehat | bash but all I get is “(6) Could not resolve host”

I have changed to English (US) layout and I have setup wifi. What could I have missed?

Best regards,


Work or at home? Sometimes the company firewall will cause errors like that.


At home, do you think it could be my router causing this trouble?

Best regards,


Honestly not sure? Try this instead
curl https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash
Original Picade hat or Picade X-Hat?


I get the same error message. I have the Picade X.


Ok, it looks like the first one you posted is the one to run.
curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash
From here, https://github.com/pimoroni/picade-hat , can you navigate to that page in a browser?
Phil @gadgetoid may know where to go what to do next? There might actually be something amiss on thier end?


Yes I can navigate to that page. Worth mentioning is also that I tried sharing a mobile hotspot and accessed through that as I thought maybe the router was causing this issue but the same error message. I’ll ask gadgetoid if he knows anything, thank you for your help!

Best regards,
