This is not enough. There is rpmdb-whitebox and some other packages you
have to replace to get fully working system.

rpm -qa | grep 'WB\|whitebox'

Replace all packagec from the output above with appropriate packages
from Centos. Sometimes this could be a package with -centos instead of
-whitebox. In this case you have to remove old and install new by hand
(you may use rpm -e --nodeps and then rpm -Uvh to replace package with
different name).

In case you have WB only in release number, rpm -Uvh --force package
should be sufficient.
