I was trying to make my dreamhost to support Amazon WebService (aws), the first problem I encountered is, missing libxslt.
Following the instruction here, I managed to install libxslt to my custom location.
The next problem is openssl support missing from ruby. I had to re-configure ruby to make it openssl ready. Instruction can be found here.
All aws samples passed, then.
With one minor issue left, I got warning when running ruby:
Invalid gemspec in [/home/me/.gems/specifications/openssl-extensions-1.2.0.gemspec]: invalid date format in specification: “2011-11-03 00:00:00.000000000Z”
Hope I can figure this out later.
