Hi there,

I'm writting a unix driver for a network card.

How can i get current system tickcount(or current system time) in
kernel drivers? My OS is Banyan Unix 7.0 -- based on SysV/386 kernel.

Thanks in advance!

regards,
Joss

I think you want ctime(2)

I don't know your unix, but I suspect it will have a kernel
symbol time_t lbolt, which is incremented every clock tick.

No, the orignal poster is writing a driver.

On solaris, you can use drv_getparm (9F), check
if there is a similiar call to help you.
