File watcher failed repeatedly

Answered

Hi!

I'm running IntelliJ IDEA 2023.3 (Community Edition) Build #IC-233.11799.241 on Debian 6.0.8-1. I keep getting this “External file changes sync might be slow. File watcher failed repeatedly and has been disabled”. I checked the logs and I get this a buch of lines like this:

 

INFO - #c.i.o.v.i.l.NativeFileWatcherImpl - Starting file watcher: /<path>/idea-IC-233.11799.241/bin/
    ···fsnotifier
WARN - #c.i.o.v.i.l.NativeFileWatcherImpl - /<path>/idea-IC-233.11799.241/bin/fsnotifier: 1: Syntax error:
    ···")" unexpected
WARN - #c.i.o.v.i.l.NativeFileWatcherImpl - Watcher terminated with exit code 2
 

And then

WARN - #c.i.o.v.i.l.FileWatcher - File watcher failed repeatedly and has been disabled
 

 

I've checked and I've found no one reporting this error. Is there a way to fix it?

 

Thanks.

Please provide the logs  (Help | Collect Logs and Diagnostic Data), upload them (snapshot file and log files) to https://uploads.jetbrains.com/, provide their upload IDs here and we will investigate it.
 
Where do you keep the project files? Is it a local file system?
