Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  firefox-2: Depends: libhunspell-1.1-0 (>= 1.1.6-1) but it is not installable

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install libhunspell-1.2-0

libhunspell-1.2-0 is already the newest version.
E: Broken packages which looking at the changelog seems to be the fix for this, fails to build on all architectures.

I can not get F5Networks firepass SSLVPN to install in Firefox 3. I was able to get it to work with Firefox 2 in Hardy.
Now I can not install Firefox 2 because of a dependency with libhunspell.

The error I get when trying to add the plugin/F5Network/SSLVPN in Firefox 3 is that it never connects.

I managed to manually install F5networks Firepass on Firefox 3, by following attached instructions (put in correct folder and unzip SSLVpn.tgz in /usr/local/lib/F5networks).
This worked very well in Fedora 9 and 10, but there seems to be an issue in Ubuntu intrepid ibex. The plugin says I am correctly connected, and I get a correct IP adress, but I can't ping any network resource, and the routes aren't correctly created.
The problem is the same if I install Firefox-2. I think there is a bug in Ubuntu 8.10, but I didn't find any solution, although I have searched in many forums.
