Bug Description

For some reason removing ndiswrapper from the system (Intrepid) doesn't remove the "ndiswrapper"-line from /etc/modules file. I noticed it when I reported bug 307266.

uname -a:
Linux ubuntu 2.6.27-9-generic #1 SMP Thu Nov 20 21:57:00 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

ndiswprapper version before removing: latest version which was avaible on 8.12.2008

from dmesg:
[ 34.706468] ndiswrapper version 1.53 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)

Please ask me if you need more information to reselve this bug.

This is intended. The package ndiswrapper-utils only contains the utilities i.e. the ndiswrapper-script and the loadndisdriver-binary.
The module itself is in linux-image (intrepid) or in linux-ubuntu-modules (hardy).

Changed in ndiswrapper:
status: New → Invalid

Andreas Gnau:
Ndiswrapper's removing script should still check and remove the "ndiswrapper"-line from /etc/modules.

It shouldn't. There is not script adding anything to /etc/modules so it shouldn't remove anything.
If you do changes to your config-files it's up to you to undo them.
