TRU64 Driver development

I have several Alpha servers running either tru64 os version 4.0f or 5.1b. I have a driver that I want to use under both os versions. In my app, I use the "unamee" command to determine the os version string and execute the applicable code. Can the "uname" function be used in a driver to achieve the same thing?

Yes - see 'man 2 uname' for the description of the uname function callable from within driver code.
