I need some help with this problem.

With some version of Plutus Apps, HLS and VCode works perfect. But with some specific versions, like this one:

commit cbc2df9e5d47d60505c28f321d75187d9ea85b07 (HEAD)

When HLS server starts, it throw and error with git from the Plutus Apps:

2022-11-09 17:18:26.921893854 [ThreadId 13] INFO hls:   Started LSP server in 0.00s

Every else works fine, and I can build my project without problems. But HLS is very helpful for coding and I appreciated a lot if I can use it.

This is a version of Plutus Apps that I can use reference scripts and Inline Datums.

I don't have this any of this issues with some previous versions neither.

Thank you so much!

Im editing this with something that fix that problem for me. I deleted the cache of hie-bios with:

cd $HOME/.cache/
sudo rm -R  hie-bios
