X does not start

Description of problem:
After having filled bugreport
about propertary nVidia drivers, I decided to move to nouveau drivers.
So I removed packages
Then removed /etc/X11/xorg.conf and recreated Grub menu by doing
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
I rebooted but X does not start, like when I was using propertary drivers.
(I check by doing ps cax | grep X because I am connected to the machine through SSH).
I passed the entire morning trying to resolve the problem on IRC, but I think there should be something that can interest a bugreport.

I strongly suspect a config issue here as a result of not removing the binary driver fully, or something. What does your /var/log/Xorg.0.log say after trying to start X?

Yesterday I tried to start X from console with the command
and it started! So why it does start manually and not automatically?
No problem with nouveau driver, the trouble is KDM fault:
I found out that it was a KDM problem because X started if I restarted KDM service.
I solved by doing rm -rf /var/log/journal/* ; reboot

why is a KDM problem , what KDM have to do with /var/log/journal/ ?
My mistake, I meant systemd-journald that influenced KDM in a way that we don't know
