Is there any way to force yum to re-install a package that has got corrupted (well, *may* have got corrupted)? Obviously I could do:- yum remove <package> yum install <package> but it seems like there ought to be an easier way to do it.
yum 3.2-11 (in Rawhide) has a reinstall option but the latest yum in Fedora 8 doesn't. You could file a RFE and request an update if it is not already done.
