    $ sudo apt-get install libxslt-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev 
    $ sudo apt-get install libreadline6-dev libc6-dev libssl-dev 
    $ sudo apt-get install libmysql++-dev make build-essential zlib1g-dev 
    $ sudo apt-get install openssh-server git-core libyaml-dev 
    $ sudo apt-get install redis-server postfix libpq-dev libicu-dev
