OpenSuSe 11 crashes on AMD64

Here is something you got to watch out for if you plan to install OpenSuSe 11 on a AMD 64 machine using the i386 DVD image (insert your reason for doing *that* here). Everything works out fine with the install, but the microcode package (microcode_ctl-1.17-78.1.i586.rpm) which gets started in runlevel 5 wiki will cause your machine to crash and reboot automatically. Other runlevels including failsafe mode will however work, so select those and disable this service from starting or remove the package with 'rpm -e' altogether.
