I just got transparency working with xorg-x11 6.8.. in KDE now. btw if you 
like eye candy and use kde..you definitly need this enabled :-P it's 
fricking awesome (Desktop -> Window behavior -> Translucency under CC). See 
it in action:

I had to go back to nvidia  media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.6629-r6 because 7000 
series doesn't work with transparency yet (crashes x11). It works great 
until I start mythfrontend and start watching a recording then X11 

I'm using gentoo, up to date with kernel 2.6.11, nvidia 6628 drivers, xorg 

.. normal x stuff then:
SetClientVersion: 0 8

   *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
   *** be the reason for the server aborting.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
