Fedora Core 4 & PostgreSQL

P: n/a
Well, I upgraded to Fedora Core 4 and now PostgreSQL won't start, since
my data files are from a previous version. A little Googling shows that
I should have exported my data before upgrading--news that would have
been useful at the time. I've tried to install a 7.x version, but am
having major RPM dependency issues.

Has anyone figured out how to back out 8.x, install 7.x, export data and
move on with life on Fedora 4? There's quite a bit of data that I'd
like to preserve...

I would suggest using Ubuntu (Debian) Linux! The packaging works great!
