i've tried flashrom on a Lenovo ThinkPad T400s laptop running kernel 2.6.31 (package version 2.6.31-trunk-amd64, Debian testing).
See attached file pci.txt for the output of lspci
Reading the ROM *seems* to work when run with -r, but complains Transaction error! run OPCODE 0x03 failed when run with -rV (see attached file flash.txt) The flash output file is also attached, although of a big size it seems to be empty because it compresses to 200 bytes :-(
Let me know if i can test further.
Best regards, Ariel
