So, our server got into a complete meltdown. Random files are missing, an fsck fixed something out of any of the remaining files...and thanks to sysadmin's faulty backups, I ended up trying to recover a month's worth of work. Yay for me.
So, I managed to get PAM and root authentication working. Initial checking looks like most utils are up and running (including GCC), however, I had to rebuild RPM's db and YUM is in a pretty bad state (RPM, by the way, completely lost knowledge existing packages).
Currently, I'm in desperate need to get services up and running, and I was thinking on first getting YUM installing stuff correctly.
So, how do I install YUM over the net with RPM?
i386 (i686 compatible)i686, HP blade, CentOS. Oh, and how do I get the CentOS version in Linux (cli)? CentOS 5.3 (final)
