I have Radiant site on Dream Host and have local gem installation.
When I do "gem update" it seems the mechanize gem is downloaded
because Radiant requires it? The problem is the mechanize gem never
successfully installs. I get the error message pasted below, and when
I contacted DH support, they said they can't make libxslt available,
that I would have to compile the mechanize gem for linux machine and
upload it myself. But I do not have access to linux machine. Is there
a way to get around / prevent the mechanize gem from getting stuck?
