Package: ndiswrapper-common
Version: 1.18-1ubuntu1
Severity: important

According to debian bug 381544, the ndiswrapper script in
ndiswrapper-common fails when /bin/sh points to dash.

As dash is required by ubuntu-desktop, this is a bit of a problem.

The solution is to run ndiswrapper with bash:

sudo bash -x /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper

(as pointed out by Marco Nenciarini)

The issue is resolved in debian package ndiswrapper 1.22-1 as of august
7th, and it would be really great to get it into the ubuntu packages.

fixed with this upload:

 ndiswrapper (1.38-1ubuntu1) feisty; urgency=low
   * Merge from debian unstable, remaining changes:
     - Update description to point out that the kernel source package is not required with the standard Ubuntu kernel.
     - Change the Maintainer address.
   * Closes many bugs (LP: #32275, #65779, #92155, maybe others)
