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? Thanks.
