Sphinx SQL full-text search engine
These plugins need the sphinx binaries to be installed. To simplified installation, we provide pre-built Sphinx packages for Ubuntu Hardy. Just install the package:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install sphinx-search
If you are on Lucid, there appears to be some conflicts. Install this package instead:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install sphinxsearch
And then use your Rails plugin of choice.
If you're not on a Brightbox, you'll need to configure the Brightbox APT repository on your Ubuntu box.
