The /usr/bin/nc binary for the nedit client program included in the "nedit-5.3-3" package conflicts with an already installed netcat (tested with 1.10-3) package, which supplies a different /usr/bin/nc file.

To reproduce, uninstall nedit and netcat to get a defined state. Then sync and install netcat. After that, try to install the mentioned nedit package, and you'll get this error:

[root@fennec gyroplast]# pacman -S nedit

Targets: nedit-5.3-3

Do you want to install/upgrade these packages? [Y/n]
