Exclamation Help I removed 119 packages I need.


Ok so I ignored all the warnings while uninstalling gstreamer with yum. It removed 119 packages many of which I need. Dumb move I know. I want to rollback instead of entering these all in by hand but when I use the undo or rollback command to rollback from the erase I get the list of packages erased and then an error : " Error: No packages available to install"

Whats up with that? How can I automate the process of getting all these packages back. Can't it use the repos to install these all again?

well reinstall

you will not make that mistake again


i assume that this is fedora 17

the experimental " roleback" needs a fully working OS

reinstall and move your data back over from your protected back up

I did end up installing just what I needed. Kinda nice actually since i dropped 40 packages. Either way I don't see an issue with F17 if that's what you were getting at. What is it your using?

i did something like that, back when i was using fedora 5

that is one of the reasons i tell people TO NEVER NEVER EVER use the -y flag
you NEVER do something like this

--- WARNING DO NOT DO --- WARNING DO NOT DO--- WARNING DO NOT DO--- WARNING DO NOT DO ---
Code:
su -
yum -y remove glib
