F-12 and F-13 both use Postgres 8.4, so I do not believe you could have gotten this message after upgrading from an F-12 installation with working Postgres.  Maybe the database dates from F-11 or earlier?  What is in /var/lib/pgsql/data/PG_VERSION ?
Comment 2 Tom Lane 2010-11-15 20:22:10 EST
Closing for lack of response.
Comment 3 Bevis King 2010-11-17 08:34:26 EST
The system has been totally re-installed so I can't check the details.  It had been upgraded progressively all the way from Fedora 8, so by the F12->F13 upgrade there could be a lot of legacy "baggage".

I did a fresh install of F14 and rebuilt the postgres gis database from scratch (it was being used for Open Street Map rendering).
