Another way to skin the proverbial cat:

rpm -qa | xargs -n1 -i rpm --setperms {}

If you had to mangle the package names for some reason then just stick sed
or perl in the middle.

If you have qmail on this system you will want to check those perms

I just checked and in F12, you can give rpm the whole package name output by
`rpm -qa`. This worked for me.

for pkg in $( rpm -qa )
       echo $pkg
       rpm --setperms ${pkg}

Yay, progress!--
