Postgresql will not start after update.

I updated my system using YUM yesterday.  After rebooting the system, 
postgresql will not start.  I get the following error in /var/log/messages:

Jan 13 20:02:43 wayfarer kernel: audit(1105668163.042:0): avc:  denied 
{ read } for  pid=20721 exe=/usr/bin/postgres name=PG_VERSION dev=hda4 
ino=3312466 scontext=root:system_r:postgresql_t 
tcontext=root:object_r:var_lib_t tclass=file
Jan 13 20:02:44 wayfarer postgresql: Starting postgresql service:  failed

I've done some googling, but haven't come across anything explaining 
this error.  I *think* it's a SELinux error, but am not sure.  Is there 
anyone out there that can explain this error, and more importantly, how 
to fix it?
