Help installing Ferret

http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowToIntegrateFerretWithRails

I followed everything here but at the last I get when loading page
get_results

Can only handle a String or a Query.
RAILS_ROOT: script/…/config/…

Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace
#{RAILS_ROOT}/app/models/result.rb:27:in search_each' #{RAILS_ROOT}/app/models/result.rb:27:insearch_index’
#{RAILS_ROOT}/app/models/result.rb:15:in count' #{RAILS_ROOT}/app/controllers/search_controller.rb:25:inget_results’

I’m beat, I did everything I mostly understand what is happeneing on
the code… But still nothing

Though at
require ‘ferret’
module FerretConfig
include Ferret

INDEX = Index::Index.new(:path =>
‘f:/home/jan/workspace/ferret_test/index’)

end

I just changed ‘f:/home/jan/workspace/ferret_test/index’) to ‘index’
since it is root in my folder and i’m on OSX tiger

Our site has a Ferret-based search engine on OSX and we didn’t need
anything
special to get it running. We do specify the full path to the index
directory, so you may try that. Can you post the code that throws these
errors?

class SearchController < ApplicationController
  # initial creation of a lucene index
  def create_index
    # our central INDEX
    index = FerretConfig::INDEX

    # get all Favorites, iterate over and index them
    favourites = Favourite.find(:all)
    for fav in favourites
      index << {:key => fav.id, :title => fav.title, :teaser => 
fav.teaser, :url => fav.link}
    end
    # don't close the index, but be sure to write it to the fs
    index.optimize()
    redirect_to(:action => 'search_form')
  end
  def get_results
     #we'll handle over the search_term to the view for following 
paginator searches
     if (params[:search])
       @search_term = params[:search][:search_term]
     else # is it a paginator search?
       @search_term = params[:search_term]
     end
     condition = 'teaser:"' + @search_term + '"'
     # we'll use the standard rails paginator
     @result_pages, @results = paginate(:result, :per_page => 5, 
:conditions => condition)
     return @result_pages, @results, @search_term
   end
end

here is the code zipped

try acts_as_ferret, it will make using ferret dead simple.

Cheers.
