While integrating RTNET ethernet driver in OROCOS I observe some difficulties in switching to hard real time for a thread in Orocos. To send a packet the RTAI procedure rt_make_hard_real_time() should be called. Is it possible to do the same in Orocos for an ACTIVITY for example?
The example in "2.5. Accessing the Threads from Activities" from "Orocos Component Builder's Manual" does not to work: act->thread()->makeHardRealtime(); because the function seams not to exist.
