fedora 11 install from scratch

Hi, everybody,
I have the following problem:
I am using Fedora 11.
I used the command "yum erase python" to remove version 2.6 of my python (which was a total mistake, I agree, but downgrading was complaining something and I got angry and ... whatever)
Together with erasing python, almost all other programs were erased also
Now I got "yum" working, also "yumex", and I am trying to recover my system to have all the software, packages, libraries it had by the DEFAULT installation before my intervention (now I don't have even Terminal ... ). Only the default ones. Does anyone has any idea how can I do that? Is there a list of the default packages coming with Fedora 11 somewhere? Can I import it somehow in "yumex", or maybe give the list to "yum" from a script and execute it. My idea is to do this somehow automaGically ... without me, having to press "yes" about 8245 times...

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance...

Try


Code:
su
yum groupinstall "Base" "GNOME Desktop Environment"  "Sound and Video"

This will do at least 90% +

Except I would go for KDE.

You could also find your install DVD or CD. Run either the upgrade or repair option. That should put it back again.

Thanks a lot! That really did the job! ...
I actually used "yum grouplist" and filtered the groups that are already installed on my computer. Then iterating over each group name, I reinstalled all the packages that were previously installed.
Useful option for yum came to be -y because it answers yes to every question.

sudo yum -v -y groupinstall "Base" "$nextPackage"

Again, 10x a lot and have a nice day
