Does SDL requires reparenting wm?
Jakub Lach


Please CC me with replies, I'm not subscribed.

It appears to me that SDL assumes reparenting wm,
I personally use dwm, with SDL 1.2.14 I have problems
(blank or overlapped window spawned) with both dwm 5.6
and 5.7.2 (previously with SDL 1.2.13 only with 5.7.2),
I heard of similar issue with awesome wm. I confirmed same
behaviour also with cwm.

best regards,
