I installed postgres but I can't start it:
# service postgresql start
Starting postgresql (via systemctl): Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.

# systemctl --failed
UNIT LOAD ACTIVE SUB JOB DESCRIPTION
postgresql.service loaded failed failed SYSV: PostgreSQL database server.
