Essentially, after installing livna's packages instead, you would need
to do an rpm -Va on various packages to ensure that the files hadn't
been replaced (If they have, reinstall those packages).

Not to nit-pick, but running rpm -Va will check *all* packages; that's what the -a switch does. Same for rpm -qa listing all packages. Of course, you can also do:

rpm -qa kernel*

to see all packages that begin with "kernel". If you want to verify only certain packages with rpm, run:

rpm -V package1 package2 package3

BTW:  rpm -Va will take a long time to run.

Users who are technically inclined enough to optimize the rpm verify
to a subset of all packages that just encompass all X packages, are
of course free to do so.  :o)

rpm -Va gets them all, without having to have a big explanation, or
provide a list of all of the relevent packages however.
