My system freezes totally and immediately any time I view HTML5 video or audio on my Linux (OpenSUSE 13.2 x64) system using a WebKit-based browser (Chrome, Chromium, Opera all do it) of any kind. Flash works fine, but I hate flash. One time I actually got a kernel panic message from the Nouveau drivers, but I can't find anything in the logs about any error or failure.
When the system is frozen, it doesn't respond to any input and the audio starts looping the last few seconds of output.
Are there any system settings or kernel flags that I can set to enable more logging? Or any specific logs I should look for?
I'm using a self-built system with a Core i7 4790, GeForce GTX 760, and 16GB RAM. I'm dual-booting between OpenSUSE 13.2 and Windows 8.1, each on separate SSDs. Incidentally, Windows has no issues whatsoever.
I've tried Nouveau and the NVidia proprietary drivers with no effect on the freezes.
