    When I first read of this project it gave me the idea to create my own aliases to go to those dirs with a very long path name in .bash_aliases file so I can go to those by just typing a word. Quite a nice list you have there @JasKinasis I myself use a few of those as well, cmus, wget, scrot ...

    Debian installation Problem

    Precisely my point, it doesn't ship with a desktop by default, meaning you can opt to install just text mode and from there install everthing else which is quite faster and much more reliable.

    Maybe try again with sudo? sudo stat * > logs.txt or sudo ls -lt > logs.txt By the way, which Linux distro is this? Just tried here in /etc/ and didn't work, I had to become root so it worked.

    Can I run ls with with multiple arguments

    @granidier 32+ millions of files? Wow! That's way too many files! no wonder ls, stat or your 3rd party program hangs. What if you redirect the output to a file? Maybe something like stat * > logs.txt or ls -lt > logs.txt might work and later you can review logs.txt to narrow your search...
