I could probably phrase my need better. I would like to
-Use PDA as an auxiliary display to Desktop.
-Display an X screen on the PDA, operating much like TwinView. The
mouse cursor would be able to move onto and interact with display.
-not required to have PDA touchscreen input, just a dumb display
I was not really thinking along the lines of DisplayLink or any kind
of HID solution. Hopefully there is a userspace only solution more
-a server running on the PDA providing a linux frame buffer
-Desktop Xorg would incorporate this frame buffer as another screen
-PDA runs an Xorg server, and Desktop Xorg incorporates this as a remote server
