I have rpm documentation for renaming the package. I get to know about
<Obsoletes> tag. I am able to build a new package successfully after
adding this tag in spec file. For example:

Suppose there is a package PkgA , I want to rename it to PkgB...
For PkgB-
Obsoletes: PkgA <= 2.00.000-1

But When I install PkgB, it is not uninstalling PkgA. Instead PkgA and
PkgB are installed side by side.
