We are using flashrom to flash BIOS in Linux. But it can only successfully
read flash and save into file, can not write ROM file into flash.
Error information --- Segmentation fault.
OS --- Fedora6 with kernel 2.6.18
Chipset --- Intel ICH6-M
Flash chip --- SST49LF008A
Flashrom version --- It is extracted from coreboot-v2-3401.tar.bz2.
My operation step are,
1. cd flashrom
3. Read flash and save into myBIOS.bin (./flashrom -r myBIOS.bin). Result
4. Write myBIOS.bin into flash (./flashrom -wv myBIOS.bin). Result:
Could you please provide us some comments or proposals on the problem?
Thanks a lot.

Maybe it is just me, but it seems like lately there have been a lot of
posts to the mailing list about, coreboot not supporting ANY Intel
chipsets/cpu's. Is there rumors spreading around the mill??? If so we need
to nip this in the bud, this is probably discouraging people that want to
get involved with coreboot.
More good news:
We have been accepted as exhibitors at OpenExpo in Zürich!
We did not get a huge booth, but we should still have enough space
to show off a few boards.
So far me and Carl-Daniel are going, but it would of course be fun
if even more people could make it there. :)
We're also a Hackontest candidate - the contest takes place at the

Mostly good cleanups (thanks for removing temp16 et al) but
it87xx_probe_spi_flash() got a lot worse IMO. Patch attached.
The name is also rather unfortunate, since it is used for board
enable rather than chip probing, but that is for later.
