Exclamation install/remove HAL daemon incident

hey gents

am using RHEL 5.3 and I had downloaded hal- to update HAL daemon by using #yum update command but things didn't go fine so I decided to delete the daemon using #yum remove command

while removing the system asked if am sure to delete 146 packages mentioned in a table which I agreed to do so

now I am trying to install the downloaded RPM by placing the package in /var/lib/up2date and using the commands bellow but i couldn't also!

#yum install hal-

#rpm -i hal-

First off,.. check to see if:

yum history
works. If it does, you can roll back the changes. If not, then you can look at /var/log/yum.log to see what was removed. Then you can re-install them.
