This is in no way related to the synaptic package itself.

First of all you seem to have problems with prelink. (leftover #prelink# 

Secondly, some package also added /usr/share/applications/alc.desktop 
which has problems on its own. It seems to be something related to aMule. 
You can find the culprit by doing:

        rpm -qif /usr/share/applications/alc.desktop

And send the packager a mail with your output.

The last message is related to the vim package and, just like the other 
messages, is harmless (but annoying at least).

Well, I cannot comment on Norwegian being broken :) Synaptic works fine 
here and you're the first to report this (which does not prove a thing, 
but may be an indication). You may want to report this upstream, they may 
have heard of similar problems.

Actually I'm not on this list, but a little bird told me about this thread 
:) I know am on this list, but don't expect me to read all mails from now 
on. If you want to report something, include me. Or if you see someone 
reporting something that should be addressed to me too, forward it.

Thanks in advance !

Do mention that to the synaptic developers when you report the UTF problem ! :)
