The first step is to help potential helpers. Exactly quoting the full
error message gives some chance to offer a possible diagnosis.

ndiswrapper is a script. Can you post the 10 lines around the line that
fails, and mark the problem line? (From the exact line number given by
the error message) 

Then we will see what is actually failing. (After all, the sudo
succeeded, and the script executed, did it not?)
