Hawaii on Xorg

For some reason I have removed Gnome-desktop and installed Hawaii desktop using dnf groupinstall "Hawaii". It includes xorg-x11-drv-evdev as described here. But I have encountered a problem.

SDDM menu have entries "Openbox" (as Hawaii's WM, I guess) and "Hawaii (Wayland)". So Hawaii (Wayland) doesn't start because my driver is Nvidia proprietary. When I try to enter the 3 runlevel and start Hawaii on Xorg using startx /usr/bin/hawaii nothing happen. There are no EE's in /var/log/Xorg.0.log. And I have uncommented Xorg sections in /etc/sddm.conf. No results.

I am so confused... Is it any way to start Hawaii using Xorg, not Wayland? Or should I remove my proprietary Nvidia driver first?

Hawaii is the problem, so would recommend you wait for dev to update. in the meantime, look at cinnamon as a good DE. I use it with nvidia proprietary with no issues.
