I have a 32bit touch screen device running CentOS 5.2 which has some of its BIOS settings accessible in /dev/nvram and others elsewhere else (that’s why I’ve been loooking at flashrom).
I have tried later distributions (CentOS 6.7 and the System Rescue CD) and they both report the following:
[root@server ~]# /var/tmp/flashrom-0.9.8/flashrom -p internal
flashrom v0.9.8-r1888 on Linux 2.6.32-573.el6.i686 (i686)
flashrom is free software, get the source code at http://www.flashrom.org
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
WARNING: No chipset found. Flash detection will most likely fail.
No EEPROM/flash device found.
Note: flashrom can never write if the flash chip isn't found automatically.
What information is needed to identify the chipset in use so support can be added for these devices?
