you just place a copy of the shared file at other place

after you remove package C, you mv the copy to the orginal place
try it , I have no idea if it will work

Subject:*handling removal of shared file

[cross post rpm-list@redhat.com, usenet group linux.redhat.rpm ]
I have 3 specfiles for 3 [somehow related] packages, A, B, C.
All 3 specfiles*include same configfile /etc/abc_common.cfg.
When I remove package C, rpm -e removes file /etc/abc_common.cfg,
even though A and B are still installed. This breaks packages A and B.

How to make rpm keep shared file until last package that uses it is
removed ?
