You can't put the data directory in a nonstandard place under SELinux
unless you modify the security policy to allow the postgres daemon to
write in that nonstandard place.  The normal behavior of
selinux-policy-targeted is to confine postgres to /var/lib/pgsql.

So: (1) use /var/lib/pgsql/data, (2) modify the policy, or (3)
disable SELinux enforcement.

BTW, since you are using the RPMs, why are you bothering with manual
database setup?  "sudo /sbin/service postgresql start" is all you
need to do.
