Default KDE Desktop Effects & Fedora 14

KDE Desktop Effects no longer work with KDE 4.6.3 on Fedora 14 x86_64. The only way I can get it to work is to change composting type to XRender which disables many effects. Whenever I log in with root opengl works?

When I try to change to opengl as a normal user it says "Failed to activate desktop effects using given configuration items. . . . . "

Nvidia Driver Version:
NVRM version: NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 260.19.36 Tue Jan 18 16:56:11 PST 2011
GCC version: gcc version 4.5.1 20100924 (Red Hat 4.5.1-4) (GCC)

Any idea what is wrong? No configuration changes had occurred, however I believe the system was updated. . .

xorg.conf below:
