I get this error when I try to execute npm start in the plutus-playground-client directory

If I go to it seems the plutus playground it's working but I can't see anything in the page. I would be really grateful if someone has figured it out this problem.

You need to run this in the nix-shell of plutus-apps and run with GC_DONT_GC=1 npm start
