Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Multiboot problem
Hi all,

I continue my multiboot sector but I'm blocked...To do so, I have 
implemented a dummy libC like the Funk project (But all function return 
a NULL pointer or 0).
I'm trying to call the caml_startup function but it freeze. So I look 
into Ocaml source to know on which function it relies.
Then in my main I call (instead of caml_startup) 
caml_init_ieee_floats(), caml_stat_alloc(), 
caml_register_custom_operations()...

I put debug information on all my functions to know which functions are 
called. Then the caml_stat_alloc work well but if I call the 
caml_register_custom_operations function it freeze...
So I copy the code of the caml_register_custom_operations function and 
renamed it caml_register_custom_operations1...I removed all code of this 
function (so the function do nothing)...

So if I call caml_stat_alloc() function it work...
If I call the caml_register_custom_operations1 it work also
But if I call the caml_stat_alloc() and the 
caml_register_custom_operations1 after... It freeze.... And I don't know 
why!!!

There is the code... If someone has an idea....

Regards
David LONY
