I started a new discussion post, based on your message here
thx. I read your answers, and
I've used the latest version available through ubuntu 10.04 which is
sphinxsearch 0.9.8.1-2 (not compatible with your plugin).
apt-get and synaptic package manager Ubuntu 10.04 only picks up sphinxsearch 0.9.8.1-2
the package distributions can be woefully outdated depending on the repository. you could (pull a more updated version off an untrusted launchpad ppa not for ubuntu distro ) I'm not ready to upgrade the OS version, so ..
I am going straight to this link for the 2.05 .deb build
where there are releases that are built already.
Your distribution of sphinx source (requires mysql-dev++ headers to be installed) to successfully configure and a compiler (e.g. g++) to make it.
I 'm pulling down the .deb release and I'll let you know - provided you want feedback for improvement (or complaints as some people call them).
I do like the demo you have, and the installation plugin looks like a herculean effort to design and build for all linux variants, and versions.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
