uninstall just the package without dependency

How can you uninstall just the package without dependency packages?

does --nodeps also work for rmp -e or just for installing packages?

you can use rpm -e --nodeps.

I just found out after I removed every depended package using yum remove. I just wanted to remove a package that was causing the problem and then reinstall the same package from rescue cd. Now I removed hole bunch of stuff and don't know how to get them back.

I can't do fresh install. I have my documents and other apps installed and just want to keep those apps. It took me while to install other apss.

Any suggestions? put the rescue cd and do an upgrade via gui, rather than doing fresh install and keeping partition as it is without formatting?
