Last night I did
rm -Rf /tmp as root. I wasn't drunk. But I definitely feel I was dumb to do so. Now X doesn't work. I read few days back that after doing
rm, one can't recover the lost data. I mounted a USB stick but it doesn't show up in
/media directory. I need to backup the data in
/home folder. I think I can recover that data by some live usb.
Is there a way to backup the rpms that are installed on Fedora machine? I wish to save bandwidth. So if it's possible, I'd prefer saving all the installed rpms in a directory and then re-installing them simply by doing
rpm -i. I earlier posted this question but YUMonCD package doesn't work fine on my Fedora 14. I found this to create a list of installed rpms and then re-installing it after formating. But it doesn't save any bandwidth for me.
