Negative, shouldn't.

This looks like a bug in rpm, and it might have crashed in the postinstall
script (which is as simple as
echo "Updating etc/rc.config..."
if [ -x bin/fillup ] ; then
bin/fillup -q -d = etc/rc.config var/adm/fillup-templates/rc.config.ssh
else
echo "ERROR: fillup not found. This should not happen. Please compare"
echo "etc/rc.config and var/adm/fillup-templates/rc.config.ssh and"
echo "update by hand."
fi
).

Run "rpm -Vv rpm" to see if your rpm subsystem is intact. The md5sum for
rpm is
a559290bf3786ced965542143a8de970 /bin/rpm

No, there should not be any. I am running several 7.0 SuSEs all over the
place; Our ftp servers are 7.0, btw, and they did not have this problem.

In doubt you should re-install the rpm command, the rpm can be found on
the ftp server:
