Does Odoo require a specific version of PostGreSQL?

I tried installing Odoo on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with PostGreSQL 9.3 and I kept getting the error:

"Skipping database test as its base version is not"

I find it hard to believe that the Odoo/OpenERP developers would want to restrict users to a specific version of postgresql.

I personally have Odoo V8 running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with PostGreSQL 9.3, so it should be possible.
Did you get anymore errors or logfile reports? You should give it a second try with a clean VM probably.

The warning has nothing to do with Postgres.  The database in question was created with an earlier version of Odoo.

If it was created with an earlier version of v7, simply run: openerp-server --update=all --database=DB_NAME

Hi Timo.

It has not restriction on postgresql version. I think you have not properly followed the installation process.
