GL and X and windows managers

Hello Everybody

I have been wondering if it would be possible to create a OpenGL window in Xfree86 without a window manager. If possible how would you write something along that line. Also is it possible in Xfree86 4.0 to use more then one hardware excelerated windows.
The reason for the questions, is that I would like that create a window manager that uses opengl for the display. If we used opengl as the window manager, transparancy and things along that line could be used.
Also let me know what you think of the idea.

As far as I know, OpenGL on X only depends on GLX, which is provided by the X server. I don’t think you need a windowmanager for this (just run a OpenGL app and kill the windowmanager, the app will still run), so I guess that what you are trying to do is perfectly possible

I supposs you are right. Thanks, do you have any idea how I would go about creating a context.

Thanks Ben
