Execution of spec file.


I have written a spec file and using rpmbuild i successfully generated .rpm binary package.
While upgrading the rpm i need to remove some rpms from my machine. So i mention it in Obsolete: target in spec file. Can you please tell me while upgrading the rpm whether spec file will be executed again or not?

The .spec file itself isn't "executed" but keywords like "obsoletes" and instructions in %pre / %post and %preun / %postun are. To test this update the package using rpm with the "--test -vv" flags.
