moving modules from linux (gnomesword/bibletime) to jsword
Hi! I've just installed jsword on my new eeepc 901 (Linux), and it works great there!

i've downloaded a few new modules, but I've also transferred over from my linux desktop system a bunch of other modules I've accumulated there over the years.

All but two of them work fine in jsword. Two of them (two that I made myself from non-public sources--though not the only ones I've made) don't display. (i.e., the name of the book of the bible displays, but no text appears.) When I run jsword from a command prompt, I can look at that window and see a whole long string of messages. The first one seems to be permission denied on the nt.vss and ot.vss files for those two modules. But they have the same ownership and permission as all the other modules.

The only thing I see about those two that is different, is that there is a separate data file and subdirectory for each book. Not sure why they are this way, but it must be something to do with the way I made them (don't ask me now, I don't remember). the directory structure is the same as it was on linux.

Anyone got any clues they can pass on?

Thanks for the great software!
