It doesn't point to any problem.
Further investigation led me to the fact the there are two copies of libglib-2.0.so.0, one in /usr/lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0 and the other in /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 (64 bit and 32 bit respectively)
These are the output of nm commands of these files
$> nm -D /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 | grep g_dgettext
0005a030 T g_dgettext
$> nm -D /usr/lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0 | grep g_dgettext
00000000000598c0 T g_dgettext
What could be the problem of this symbol collision. By the way, I am using yum to install a long list of rpms and this error is given by yum install.
