Unplug your mouse and use it in a text environment, see if it boots that way, or gives you a further error.

If it doesn't, the mouse/ PS2 driver needs updating, if it does then its a further problem

To be honest, I'm unsure; PS/2 ought to work right out of the box, its pretty much standard. Try a dbus update, that looks like thats where the problem is coming from

Well you're sitting in front of the thing, what kind of mouse do you have?

EDIT: As in, does it connect via PS/2? USB?

As in a downgrade? If you want to do that, get your data off and reinstall, easiest way

I think downgrade is bad way,and probably it won"t work, my system refuses to log in and I didn't konw why this problem appeares,the fedora11 should be better than fedora 10 but the new problem make me helpless. unplug the mouse is right the solution to the question,but another question-remaing"_",no word-comes up,it's really boring.

Boring? See, to me, this is a puzzle, and puzzles are always good for beating boredom. Installations go wrong for many different reasons all the time. Back your data up and try a fresh install, with the mouse plugged in of course.
