Remove rpm packages with failed scriptlets execution

Have you ever been in that awkward spot where an rpm package had a scriptlet error, and you can’t remove it from your system, ever? I have to do this from time to time, but end up forgetting how it’s done. Let’s change that by keeping it in this blog (incidentally helping other people):

rpm -e --noscripts --justdb [packagename-version]

That was easy :)
