i can't be of any help figuring out how to compile stuff on a godaddy server but to skip the RedCloth installation altogether try: gem install rake will_paginate gem install rack -v 1.1.0 gem install radiant --ignore-dependencies this will cause Radiant to fallback on its vendored (older, pure ruby) RedCloth.
