Thanks Matěj.... The Debian guide you gave me is something I can
understand. I've installed the pbuilder tools, and begun to test using
the old BibleTime Debian packages that you suggested. There are still a
lot of dependencies I need to meet, but at least I can see the
possibilities. It's going to be a long learning curve, but I'm going to
have a go.
God bless, Barry.
