Is there a reason you did that, when Fedora provides PostgreSQL packages?

# yum install postgresql postgresql-server
# chkconfig postgresql on
# service postgresql initdb
# service postgresql start

Running Fedora's packages means that you'll get updates via 'yum update' 
when there are bugfixes or security fixes available, and makes it easier 
to get help here on the list since you'll be using the same packages 
everyone else does.
