Error : Unable to connect to dbus


Can anyone advise on action to take for this error?

The symptoms are as follows:

Shutdown my Tosh Satellite Pro on F16 with Linux 3.2.3-2.fc16.i686
Rebooted and X will not start. It pushes me to root prompt for Emergency mode.
From there I can change user and startx
But the performance and environment is not exactly as I would expect.
No services appear to run, no network. etc etc
Some GUI applications wont start.

Sometime I can get network to start.
When I do yum operations, I can see this error all the time:
"Unable to connect to dbus"

When I do a status I can see the following:
#service dbus status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  status dbus.service
dbus.service - D-Bus System Message Bus
	  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/dbus.service; static)
	  Active: failed since Mon, 06 Feb 2012 22:13:11 +0000; 31min ago
	Main PID: 11060 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/dbus.service
When I try restart I see the following
/bin/dbus-daemon has failed.

# service dbus restart
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  restart dbus.service
# service dbus status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  status dbus.service
dbus.service - D-Bus System Message Bus
	  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/dbus.service; static)
	  Active: failed since Mon, 06 Feb 2012 22:45:44 +0000; 4s ago
	 Process: 13932 ExecStart=/bin/dbus-daemon --system --address=systemd: --nofork --systemd-activation (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
	 Process: 13930 ExecStartPre=/bin/rm -f /var/run/messagebus.pid (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	 Process: 13927 ExecStartPre=/bin/dbus-uuidgen --ensure (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/dbus.service
How can I get this restarted as it appears to be causing all sorts of inter process communication issues?

appreciate any help/suggestions.
