how to restore original package after uninstalling the upgraded package using rpm

have following package installed

rpm -qa |grep ADMIN

It will give the following package installed:

ADMIN-4.0.0.1

Now I will upgrade the ADMIN package using the following command.

rpm --upgrade ADMIN-4.1.0.1

It will upgrade the ADMIN packagge to ADMIN-4.1.0.1

Now I want that when I uninstall the ADMIN-4.1.0.1 then I got the oirginal
package ADMIN-4.0.0.1

rpm --erase ADMIN-4.1.0.1

now is there anyway(using rpm command or whatever) so that I got the original package when i uninstalled the upgraded package name.


Regards,
Amit

RPMSPEC(8)						      System Manager's Manual							RPMSPEC(8)

NAME
rpmspec - RPM Spec Tool SYNOPSIS
QUERYING SPEC FILES: rpmspec {-q|--query} [select-options] [query-options] SPEC_FILE ... select-options [--rpms] [--srpms] query-options [--qf,--queryformat QUERYFMT] [--target TARGET_PLATFORM] QUERY OPTIONS The general form of an rpm spec query command is rpm {-q|--query} [select-options] [query-options] You may specify the format that the information should be printed in. To do this, you use the --qf|--queryformat QUERYFMT option, followed by the QUERYFMT format string. See rpm(8) for details. SELECT OPTIONS --rpms Operate on the binary package header(s). --srpm Operate on the source package header(s). SEE ALSO
popt(3), rpm(8), rpmdb(8), rpmkeys(8), rpmsign(8), rpm2cpio(8), rpmbuild(8), rpmspec --help - as rpm supports customizing the options via popt aliases it's impossible to guarantee that what's described in the manual matches what's available. http://www.rpm.org/ <URL:http://www.rpm.org/> AUTHORS
