You can find Geomview in several locations, including Sunsite. However, the home of Geomview is the anonymous ftp site ftp.geom.umn.edu. The Linux port can be found at pub/software/geomview/geomview-linux.tar.gz (3.1 MB). Source code, geomview-src.tar.gz, is available in the same directory.
If you have Netscape or Mosaic, I strongly recommend that you visit Geomview's World Wide Web site, which is located at www.geom.umn.edu/software/download/geomview.html. At this site you will find not only executable code, but also an on-line tutorial for OOGL file formats, an FAQ, and introductions to other software. (While you are there, be sure to check out their Interactive Web Applications at www.geom.umn.edu/apps/.)
After Geomview is unpacked, it will occupy approximately 8.3 MB on your disk, including about 1 MB of documentation and 2.2 MB of examples. Unzipping and untarring will result in a new directory called Geomview. Change to this directory, read the README, and type install. The install script will ask you questions about where you want to install the executable, the manual pages, etc. At the end of the script, it will ask if you mind that the install script mails a registration to the Geometry Center. If you do not mind and have a mail facility set up on your machine, install will register you and place you on a very quiet mailing list (So far I have received only the registration confirmation).
