    Code:
    #if DEBUG_DYNAMIC_X11
        if (fn != NULL)
            printf("X11: Found '%s' in %s (%p)\n", fnname, x11libs[i].libname, fn);
        else
            printf("X11: Symbol '%s' NOT FOUND!\n", fnname);
    #endif
    
        if (fn == NULL)
            *pHasModule = 0;  /* kill this module. */
        return fn;
    }
    
    #endif /* SDL_VIDEO_DRIVER_X11_DYNAMIC */
    
    /* Define all the function pointers and wrappers... */
    #define SDL_X11_MODULE(modname)
    #define SDL_X11_SYM(rc,fn,params,args,ret) SDL_DYNX11FN_##fn X11_##fn = NULL;
    #include "SDL_x11sym.h"
    #undef SDL_X11_MODULE
    #undef SDL_X11_SYM

      And? The code you posted have nothing to do with that, it just checks
      if Wayland/Mir/Xorg is avalible for compiling or not.

        Sorry for stepping on your Religion and Mark your God but they do share code i looked over the SDL code files said to say there is no point in Mir ill keep using Xorg and i have better things to do like coding later noob

          anyway...
          I've decided to test XMIR on ubuntu 14.04 and i have to say WAY BETTER!
          visual glitches are gone ( at least with this hardware ) and performance is alot better
          i wonder now that SDL had mir support does that mean i can run XMIR and when i launch a game it uses MIR stuff instead of X?
          and would nvidia lasted beta drivers work with XMIR since it has EGL support? i'm unable to test this since im not close to my desktop with an nvidia card.

                Basically wayland is vaporware that needs to be implemented by each desktop environment while Mir when finished will be a display server which is ready to use without having to go to all the trouble of writing an entire protocol implementation from scratch.

                  The facts say that Wayland is that kind of vaporware that is implemented in several projects, from desktop to the in-vehicle infotainment (and in the phone world, looks to Jolla, it's a real phone, not prototype) while Mir is still implemented only in the Canonical workgroup and nobody cares to adopt it.

                      What matters is the financial backing behind project. People may not like Mir or Canonical but if they keep pushing it with financial support for years, it will eliminate the need for Wayland. If Wayland does something better, with enough effort Mir can adopt that and become better in the end. It's just a matter of manpower and industrial co-operation. For example if Mir supports closed source drivers better, companies will like it more and at least on ARM all GPU work is closed so it's clear Wayland has trouble on ARM and Mir doesn't.
