BTW, If I were you, I would recheck ownerships and permissions on the  
rest of your file system.  To see if there is more damange (extremely  
likely).  Searching for the files owned by cvs might be a good start  
(but it might not find all the damaged files).  Something like "find /  
-user cvs".

Since you were removing packages with --nodeps, you might want to rpm  
-i that i386 mysql package, in case something on the system needs it.   
It is OK to have i386 and x86_64 version of mysql package installed in
