Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "The first development ISO images of Mandriva Linux 2007 have been released for download and testing. At the time of writing only Mandriva One live CD images for the i586 and x86_64 architectures are available, but expect the usual full (4-CD) installation sets to appear on Mandriva mirrors in a day or two. The new release ships with kernel 2.6.16.20 and includes glibc 2.4, X.Org 7.1, KDE 3.5.3, GNOME 2.15, OpenOffice.org 2.0.2, Firefox 1.5.0.4 and many other open source software packages." Screenshots.

Nvidia drivers are working with Xorg 7.1 and kernel 2.6.16. You will however need to add the following line in the Device section of xorg.conf :
Option "RenderAccel" "false"

It's ATI drivers ( fglrx ) which are not working.

[root@info1 ~]: # lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia 4526516 12
agpgart 26000 2 nvidia,via_agp
i2c_core 16400 8 nvidia,w83627hf,eeprom,i2c_isa,i2c_viapro,bttv,i2c_algo_bit,tveeprom

[root@info1 ~]: # rpm -q xorg-x11 dkms-nvidia
xorg-x11-7.1.0-1mdv2007.0
dkms-nvidia-8762-3plf2007.0

[root@info1 ~]: # grep GLX /var/log/Xorg.0.log

ATI drivers are not working due to an ABI change in xorg 7.1
