My node is running well in the last month. But somehow I restart the node and currently couldn't start probably, keep stuck at smartcart socket not found:

Maximum peer count                       ETH=50 LES=0 total=50
Smartcard socket not found, disabling    err="stat /run/pcscd/pcscd.comm: no such file or directory"

My command:

geth --syncmode "fast" --rpc --rpcapi db,eth,net,web3,personal --cache=16384 --rpcport 8545 --rpcaddr --allow-insecure-unlock

What may be the main reason of this warning message? How can I fix it?

  • That is not an error, just an information line. I don't think that will cause geth to fail. You can generate more log info adding --verbosity 5 to the geth command.

  • @Ismael --verbosity 5 did not bring much related to stat /run/pcscd/pcscd.comm: no such file or directory; what may be this error related to?

  • @alper That line say geth was trying to connect with the smart card. Unless you have a smart card it is correct for that line to appear.
