Installing the wordnet gem on OSX, as of February 9 2012
View gist:1779371

Getting the wordnet gem, version 0.0.5, working is a little tricky at the moment. It's being rewritten but isn't released yet and the dbd gem is in a similar state.

These steps got it working for me on OS X Lion and MRI 1.8.7. On 1.9.2 convertdb.rb segfaults.


Download WordNet from

$ ./configure

"npm install socket-io" & you are ready to go
