I started to learn and work with sfml 2 and wanted to know if there is any way i can make my apps both window and X dependant or windowless and using something like directfb or svgalib without depending of X, this is because i want it to use different platforms (like pc) for window apps, and other without depending on X (raspi, beagle, banana)

No, the SFML window module depends on XCB thus X.
