Unhappy RPM problem with package name change


Can anyone help me with this...

I have a package by the name abc-1.1-2.i386.rpm which is now changed to ab-c-1.1-3.i386.rpm. so before building the RPM, I have made these changes to the spec file and added...

Provides: abc ab-c
Obsoletes: abc < 1.1-3

But when i do an update to the package using the rpm -Uv ab-c***, even though it does not report any error and when i query the database (rpm -q ab-c ) it shows the package as ab-c-1.1-3, there is infact no binary that gets installed on the system.

Install path for both packages (abc and ab-c) are same and after i run rpm -Uv ab-c** to update, there is nothing in the install directory..

Is there anything that i should change in the Spec file to handle this...
