I passed rm * -f in my root folder

I wasn't paying attention and I nuked my / directory with # rm * -f
My directory's are still there but I deleted all the soft links. So, I can't pass any commands to reset them.
what do I need to do, so I can make new soft links.

Use rpm -Va to see what doesn't match what the rpm database thinks it should look like.
