Fedora-9 has bleeding edge software (the x part too).
Compiz is not very compatible with kde too.
Disable compiz first and then check

compiz is only partly supported BUT compiz-fusion is fully supported

iksandi , I take it you used the nvidia.run driver.That would have over wrote the mesaGL that was installed with fedora.
