Having difficulty transferring Gnucash accounts from a Windows machine to a Linux machine

I am new to the list; I've used Gnucash for over a year now, so I
understand the program itself reasonably well. I love using it and
would be disappointed if I had to abandon its uage.
I have been using it on a Windows XP computer; the Gnucash version I'm
using on that windows PC is v2.2.9.
I am attempting to transfer the files to a computer running Mepis
Linux 8; I downloaded and installed version 2.2.6 (that's the version
provided for this Linux distrubution).
I have the data file successfully moved over and adjusted the file permissions.
I can open the file on the Mepis Linux machine and get the list of
accounts, but when I attempt to open an individual account, Gnucash
abruptly closes with no warning or error message.
The application log file is huge - 4.7 MB - so I didn't think you'd
want it all posted here.
Should I look for specific entries to help troubleshoot the process?
Or should I simply export account files via QIF etc. and them import them?
Thanks in advance -
