It's been one month I'm trying to install the Nokogiri gem on Fedora 16 to run a friend's Rails project.

I installed Ruby with RVM. Using gem install nokogiri returns

libxslt is missing. please visit for help with installing dependencies.

So I tried installing libxslt-devel with yum and it didn't work. So I used rvm reinstall to recompile ruby with xslt path given and it still doesn't work.

Then I tried installing ruby-xslt but it doesn't work because I'm using RVM.

How do I solve this awkward problem ?

Just install appropriate RVM package.

rvm pkg install libxslt
