it showed up here.    dunno what to suggest.

maybe install 5.11 on a VM somewhere with the same package set and 
architecture (on the blown system, /var/log/rpmpkgs, then copy 
everything in /bin ?   boot the target system with a rescue OS, mount 
your OS root as /mnt or something, and copy that backup to /mnt/bin ?

this won't be perfect unless you know exactly what RPMs were installed 
on the blown system, but its probably better than nothing.

I dunno.  I think I'd install a new box with 6 or 7, and migrate over 
whatever app stuff you need.
