Your workstation should have this file somewhere, it just may not be
where Geomview is looking for it. The easiest thing for you to do
might be to find where the file is on your system and then make a
symlink from /usr/lib/X11R5/libXext.sl to the files real location. Or,
if you have the development environment for the HP (compiler +
libraries) you might try compiling Geomview yourself. If this doesn't
work, write back and we'll tell you where to ftp a statically linked
version of the gvx binary from. A statically linked version shouldn't
require any shared libraries, but the downside is that it will take up
a lot more memory.

hope this helps,
