--nodeps and -i are bad things. You may be missing required packages
now, and the rpm database will show up two glib2 installs, of which
one is overwritten by the other.

Only use -i with kernels!

That's quite a lot.
# rpm -q --whatrequires libglib-2.0.so.0 | wc -l

And that's only the direct dependecy. There is no sane way to remove
glib2's shared libs.

check out the config.log for the tesing done.

Pick the rawhide gdm spec and try to upgrade it, it might be easy.
