libXext version

Hi All

I am currently attempting to build Qt 4.6 on our HP C8000.

HP-C8000<33> uname -a
HP-UX HP-C8000 B.11.11 U 9000/785 220365262 unlimited-user license

The configure runs into problems giving the following error message...
Basic XLib functionality test failed!

Trolltech provide a table of X11 requirements a section of this looks like this...
Xext libXext X Extensions 6.4.3

I wonder if anyone can explain how I obtain the version number of the libs which exist on my system to compare with the above table. For the example above I see the following in my /usr/lib/X11R6 directory.

-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 110592 Nov 14 2000 libXext.2*
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 118784 Nov 14 2000 libXext.3*
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 118016 Jun 12 2002 libXext.a*
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 24 Oct 10 2007 -> /usr/li

Re: libXext version

One possibility is to use the commande what
what /usr/lib/X11R6/libXext.3
sometimes the what command permit to see the version of the lib you want.
I have a another ugly method to know which product belong your file
swlist -l file | grep "yourfile"
and after that
swlist product
