I'm trying to open a Index created by Lucene 1.9.1. I know the index has
not been
corrupted, I can browse it with Luke but when I try:

I get the following error message:
Ferret::FileNotFoundError: File Not Found Error occured at <except.c>:93
in xraise
Error occured in index.c:840 - sis_find_segments_file
  couldn't find segments file

  from (irb):7:in `initialize'
  from (irb):7:in `new'
  from (irb):7

the segments file is inside ./index but something get wrong.

Help is appreciated :)

Ferret::VERSION = 0.11.6

as far as I remember compatibility with Lucene indexes has been dropped
at some point in time (around Ferret versions 0.9.x or maybe even
