Hi Dimitrios,

the postgresql package is required on the front-end.  It provides the
drivers for communicating with a (remote) postgres database:

$> yum info postgres
Name        : postgresql
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 8.4.13
Release     : 1.el6_3
Size        : 14 M
Repo        : installed
>From repo   : updates
Summary     : PostgreSQL client programs
URL         : http://www.postgresql.org/
License     : PostgreSQL
Description : PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database
management system
            : If you want to manipulate a PostgreSQL database on a
local or remote PostgreSQL
            : server, you need this package. You also need to install
this package
            : if you're installing the postgresql-server package.

This contrasts to the postgresql-server package, which provides the
database itself.
