Does "uptime" do what you want or do you mean booted for the truly very
first time (not counting reboots)? - John
well uptime will tell most recent boot,
not exactly what you asked, but the log files in /var/log/installer can
tell you when the current o/s was installed
if you mean when the hardware was first booted, there might be something
in /sys or maybe somewhere in BIOS PRAM, but that's almost certainly
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In<fnord> practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
