I am interested in collecting data and publishing it into graphs generated by rrdtool. Unfortunately, rrdtool has many dependencies that preclude it from being built in my local directory on Dreamhost. Would it be possible for Dreamhost to install this extremely useful package somewhere under /usr? I see that other Dreamhost customers have recently asked about this package as well. I have successfully built rrdtool on Ubuntu and would be more than happy to help.
You should send them a ticket asking, here on the forums is not the better place since it's not a customer x DH thing but a cuustomers forum.
