I want to install IONIC but I don't like Windows because sooner than later will be problems with some development tool or service that's not compatible.
Ironically I'm having problems installing IONIC on Debian too, but I think it's related that I'm running Debian inside VirtualBox... and that I'm trying to install IOINC on a shared folder in Windows.
Node, npm & IONIC are installed and working. The problem arises when I try to create an IONIC app "ionic start myApp tabs" inside a folder shared with Windows.
The folder where I want to install my IONIC app is a shared folder mounted on Debian and created in Windows. In fact I can create IONIC apps in other folders of the system, the only one that shows these errors is the shared folder.
I think it's not a permissions problem. I've tried all the installation steps as root and the same error appears. Also IONIC can write in the shared folder because there are many files inside, but for some reason the creation of the IONIC app never ends right.
I guess these last lines of the log could give someone a clue on what's happening and help me to fix it.

Please help. Thanks.
