Public bug reported:

I was trying to load the ndiswrapper kernel module after installing the drivers for my wireless card (wg311v3, driver found from this page: http://sites.google.com/site/subtlegems/netgear-wg311v3-ndis-driver-for-linux-amd64). The wireless driver appeared to install properly, but when running modprobe ndiswrapper, nothing happens and no wireless interface is added. 
dmesg includes the following error message: "BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)". syslog doesn't contain any relevant messages.

I'm using Karmic Koala alpha 3 (with the packages on the CD), and
installed ndiswrapper by downloading ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-
utils-1.9 from packages.ubuntu.com.

the packages I have installed are:
ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all
ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_amd64

ndiswrapper -v for some reason returns version 1.55
