In what way does it freeze, how long have you waited?  Can you SSH into it
whilst it is frozen?  Do you see a kernel panic printed to the screen?

That is only the X log file, it just show a normal X start up.  You'll
need to look
at dmesg an syslog for any info.

As Kevan mentioned you've tried to closely related, debian based distros.

Given openSUSE 13.2 a try, might have a newer kernel, which might improve
