We'd have to see more details to have any chance of guessing.

What kind of hardware are you using: i386? x86_64?

What TeX distribution are you using: standard TeX Live (2007? 2008- 
prerelease?), packages from a SuSE repository, or something else?

Specific version numbers would be useful (try "xetex --version" and  
"xdvipdfmx -h").

Then run "xelatex -no-pdf FILENAME.tex" followed by "xdvipdfmx  
FILENAME.xdv" (if the first command succeeds), to establish which  
process is crashing.
