Bug Description

It turns out that ndiswrapper linux kernel module was disabled during Precise development, but the linux-image-* packages still claim to "Provide" it.

Please drop the "Provides: ndiswrapper-modules-1.9"

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem (3.5.0-19.30). Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-quantal' to 'verification-done-quantal'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Marking verification-done since this is a no-brainer packaging change.
