Do you still have the install media? If so, put it in the drive and when it is mounted, run the command:
sudo yum install `find /media -name yum\*.rpm`
After that you can run
sudo yum reinstall <pkgname>
sudo yum install <pkgname>
where <pkgname> is the name of a package you would like to reinstall (e.g. nautilus).
As I'm using vmware. i dont know how to use the .iso image placed in my windows D drive. anyother option. I tried downloading nautilus browser from web, but it asks to save. When I opened it with archive manager and try to extract it , it asks for place to extract.
other thing i tried is try to run install.sh file , but it dint work
sudo (run with root priveleges)
yum (command to manage software in Fedora)
install (parameter to the yum command to tell it you want to install software)
find (command in Linux/Unix that will traverse a directory structure looking for files)
/mnt/cdrom (starting point of find's search)
NOW, THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!!
yum\*.rpm (Notice the '\' YOU NEED IT OR THE COMMAND WILL NOT WORK).
Also, you left off the '-name' parameter to find, so it doesn't know it is looking for a file "named" something (filenames are not the only thing find will search on).
The back ticks are also important. They mean "put the output of the command within the ticks here".
OK, run the command "mount" and post the output here.
