See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=116118

Also, I have successfully got things to work with the following two manual 
changes:

1. Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config and replace "/dev/psaux" with "/dev/mouse"

2. in directory /dev, change (delete and add) the symbolic link so instead of 
mouse->psaux you have mouse->input/mice

This worked for me.
