    Default How to install pwgen ?

    I searched Yast > Software Management > pwgen

    but got no results. Then I went to https://software.opensuse.org/ found pwgen but when I tried to install with one click install the installation failed saying pwgen failed to install.

    How can I install pwgen ?

    Hi
    I would surmise you being directed to an incomplete mirror....

    It's part of the distribution.....

    Code:
    zypper if pwgen
    
    Information for package pwgen:
    ------------------------------
    Repository     : openSUSE-Leap-15.0-Oss  
    Name           : pwgen                   
    Version        : 2.08-lp150.1.3     
    ....

    Yes. I used the "opensuse 15 Leap" filter and got the result which clearly says

    Ver 2.08
    SIze 22.5KB
    opensuse Leap 15

    but the one click install failed.

    No problem installing using YaST2 Software Management here in the UK using:

    http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/ftp.ope...1.3.x86_64.rpm

    Try a different mirror perhaps...

    Hi
    You need to refresh and use a different mirror... it's in the default 15.0 oss repository, no need to use a one click.

    Hi
    So can you see it in the mirror list for your locale?
