well which do you want? glib or glibc?

glib is the low-level core library that forms the basis of GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C, portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system, while glibc is the GNU C library which contains many functions and procedures for running the core of linux and any application.
