I just thought I would put some help points on compiling and installing Sphinx and SphinxSE with MySQL 5.0.37 to help anyone out there who is currently working on the same process.
1 download the mysql source for version 5.0.37 from http://downloads.mysql.com/archives/mysql-5.0/mysql-5.0.37.tar.gz
2 download sphinx source unpack it and the mysql source in the same root directory eg home/youruser/
3 from within the mysql source dir where sphinx source is in the same director cp ../sphinx-0.9.8.1/mysqlse/sphinx.5.0.37.diff ./
4 patch -p1 < sphinx.5.0.37.diff
5 sh BUILD/autorun.sh
6 cp -R ../sphinx-0.9.8.1/mysqlse sql/sphinx
7 ./configure –prefix=/usr/local/mysql –with-sphinx-storage-engine (this is important as the sphinx instructions just mention the –with-sphinx-storage-engine, without the prefix mysql is very difficult to get started believe me
8 make (takes ages for mysql)
9 make install
10 cp support-files/my-medium.cnf /etc/my.cnf
11 cd /usr/local/mysql
12 chown -R mysql .
13 chgrp -R mysql .
14 bin/mysql_install_db –user=mysql
15 chown -R root .
16 chown -R mysql var
17 /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe –user=mysql &
18 then complete the instructions for installing Sphinx on Linux, complete the sphinx.conf and run the indexer

Related to my previous post, I have read that the motivation for the lockerbie bombing may have been the horrendous shootdown of an Iranian passenger aircraft by the US missile ship USS Vincennes.
Strange political games going on these days, really weakening the respect that remains for the already frail justice system in the UK.
Plenty of motorbiking this weekend, think I need another weekend to recover. It seems the riding my Honda is like being at the gym after a couple of hours back shoulders and arms all feeling it hehe but it’s all good.
