Problem for "unable to init SDL : No available

Thank for your help! You are right. I did the build works by myself.
Then I should emerge libsdl --pretend to get the dependencies, install it.And thank for others a lot.>Yeah, naturally, you won’t have the X11 backend if you don’t even have

X11 (ie. xorg) installed. Seriously, if you’re doing some multimedia
programming you should have xorg installed. SDL has some other video
backends (kernel framebuffer, svgalib, etc.) but they’re definitely
not what the majority of people use.

And BTW the latest version of SDL is in Portage so you don’t need to
build it yourself. A simple “emerge libsdl” would suffice. It will
take care of dependencies too…
