Angry WARNING: terminal is not fully functional

For some odd reason my filesystem has become currupt.
Half of the files are bad and half are good.
I have fscked my drives and the journals and inode addresses are NOW clean.
However i have broken files all over the place.
My system is completely rpm configured and updated to the latest fedora updates repo.
It also contains packages from livna, dries, etc...
Every now an then i come accross an application that does not work. But i do not know which files it uses so i can t rpm --force them on again.
I wan t to replace every rpm package on my system again without formatting the machine, How do i go about doing this.
I cannot reinstall from the fedora dvd as most of my packages have been updated and i do not want to loose the rpmdb.
Help

Are you on a slow connection...anyway, you have more pain than gain from trying to recover the machine back to a sensible working state unless you know exactly what you broke. You might be able to go to /var/log/yum.log and retrace the packages you installed, then uninstall the ones most recent.
The yum.log file should have all the dates associated with package installs.

What are all the repos you have used? With certain repos you get nothing but trouble...

Well, this would download all the packages again for you, then install them (make sure you have ~2GB free disk space or more! That's a guess, but still):
Code:
su -
yum install yum-utils
(rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}\n' > rpms_on_system.log
mkdir rpms_to_reinstall
cd rpms_to_install
cat rpms_on_system.log | while read line;do
yumdownloader "$line"
done
rpm -Uhv --replacepkgs --replacefiles *.rpm)
I put the brackets there so you can type it all at once and then it'll run on its own.

... and the verdict is??

I hate it when people don't report back on a possible solution - important one as it is....
