### Fedora 20 - KDE not starting up

Well, it's been a long time I have a look at KDE. So, I decided to install it too on my Fedora 20 GNOME edition, and have a look at where is KDE now. And I installed KDE using:

yum install @kde-desktop


After rebooting, I tried to login to KDE Plasma and then kde wallpaper comes along with fedora logo, then the hard disk icon, and it stops there. I waited for a long time, and it still not loading. See the following picture for a good idea of what I am saying.

Here is the relevant portion from journalctl

Mar 31 00:05:07 linux-master /etc/gdm/Xsession[1838]: startkde: Starting up...

As you can see, I waited for around 3 minutes before pressing Alt+Ctrl+F2 and rebooting system. Also, there is no logs to show any kind of error. I looked for the hidden file .xsession-errors in my home directory and it is not there. Itried KDE Plasma failsafe mode but that also not starting up. Hanging at disk loading icon.
