How to force yum to reinstall a package...

Tripped over this little trick yesterday when a power failure took out libXext and killed gnome and xfce and seriously broke KDE.

Anyway, what you do is remove the package from the rpm database like this:

rpm -e --justdb --nodeps packagename
then you can use yum to reinstall the package
