Re: [glib] malloc and bdwgc

Yes, but glib is the only one I'm using now.

Still I don't know how to make GC_malloc() call the original malloc()
if I'm using LD_PRELOAD or the wrapper function and dlsym way.

Just now I found I've misread
, and that such replacement can possibly be done in a single-threaded
environment, because the hook is done with a global function pointer
variable initialization and it seems that the function is called
before memory allocation initialization

However as in
, there are nasty race conditions for such hook. And my program needs

Are there any other way around?

I've read about using GMemVTable to redirect memory allocation of glib
to GC_malloc, however as in ,
such mechanism no longer works, and even more unfortunately it says
glib allocates memory before main() so it seems that I'm even unable

Can I use bdwgc with glib >= 2.4.6? If so, how can I achieve that
