|Subject||How to make Sphinx work with Firebird on Linux?|
i need FTs (Full Text Search) function to my application. After reading and comparing different open-source solutions i found Sphinx is my way to go.
I run 64bit Firebird on a CentOS 6.x o.s.
I also managed to install Sphinx with yum (although it is a pretty old 0.8.9.1 version....the current verion on Sphinx website is 2.2)
I tried Sphinx on mysql and it works fine out-of-box.
However to make it work with Firebird there is a patch made by Vlad Khorsun and Pierre Yager...it's downloadable on Firebird website (http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/sphinx-full-text-search/).
The patch is a diff file.
There is also a readme.txt, but that only tells what each file is.
I have no information how to apply that patch. Also on forums i did not find any usable information.
Can anyone please help me make Sphinx work with Firebird on Linux?
