You're 6 versions down on an OS that's meant to be constantly updated (the current one is Fedora 20). Fedora is the distro that tests the latest and greatest packages so they can be incorporated into RedHat.

If Postgresql 9 is not available with
yum list postgresql
then I suggest you upgrade to the latest version of Fedora.

Or, if you don't like constantly upgrading, switch to a more stable distro.
If you're used to RedHat, switch to CentOS.

HTH,
Dan

According to this, you need to be at least on Fedora 18: http://www.postgresql.org/download/linux/redhat/

So if you don't want to change your OS, upgrade it to a more modern version.

fedora 14 isn't listed so probably won't work unless you upgrade

Fedora 14 is very close to CentOS6 which was based off Fedora 13.
Postgresql 8->9 update is via dumpall, so if you can have spare server just bring up CentOS6 for some 5 more years of support...

If you want just install the source, configure it and build it yourself and address any library incompatabilities you may encounter along the way....
refer to
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/install-short.html

usually for fedora to overwrite an existing postgresql install (don't forget to backup your data first using pg_dumpall).

./configure --prefix=/usr

see
./configure --help
for more details.
