Hi if I create an app using sdl can I open other windows somehow using the X11 api? If I can, how would the event loop work?

My understanding is that SDL will support it in the 1.3 release - no idea how long it will be until it's released though.

In the mean time, you're stuck with either using one window or trying to implement it yourself (which is not a trivial task).
