Copy your /var/lib/pgsql directory to somewhere safe.
Try installing pgsql on an FC3 computer (or whatever older version you
were upgrading from). Copy the /var/lib/pgsql contents to it, and maybe
(!) you'll have a functional database again. Maybe not, though.
Do you have pre-upgrade tape (or CD or whatever) backups of the
/var/lib/pgsql directory? Those files would be better than the
I too learned about Fedora's habit of clobbering pgsql data after
upgrades the hard way... but I had enough backups to fix things. Backup
your raw files AND do a pgdumpall every night!
