Hi all,

1. When working locally (KDE desktop), does KDE renders into local X
server via UDP port 6000, or it uses DRI, or some other means ? -in
short, does it uses loopback networking?

No, by default X never uses a network connection when the connection is to the
local machine. It is done over a socket

In fact, by default, X doesn't listen to any network interface at all, that's
something you have to enable manually

2. Does X protocol allows 1 "X client" application to be rendered on
two X servers on two terminals at once?

I don't think there is anything built into the protocol to handle that, but in
principle it should be possible to write something like an X proxy that sends
the displays to multiple x servers. kind of like an X multiplexer

But I've never seen it done

Madness takes its toll
