You could always try it. Ldconfig will complain about some files not
being symbolic links if you don't copy the files correctly. It would be
easiest if you had another machine with the exact same packages
installed. Either way, prepare for a long evening. Good luck.

Subject: Accidentally deleted contents of /var/lib/
I am running FC2. I accidentally deleted the entire contents of my
/var/lib/ directory. As a result, rpm -qa shows up nothing. Also, the
partitions that I was exporting to another machine through nfs now show
up empty on the other machine.
Can I just copy over the contents of /var/lib/ from another FC2 machine?
Or do I need to reinstall FC2 on this machine? Or is there a simpler way
to recreate the contents of /var/lib?
Any help or pointers are appreciated.
