Now not only a debian users can install it w/o any effords, but Fedora

$ sudo yum install flashrom
Although this handy tool still in pending state for pushing into
Fedora 7 updates testing repository (just formal procedure but it
takes some time) users of Fedora Core 6 and Fedora Development may
install it as soon as mirrors will be synchronized with main Fedora
Another one think I want to say - we have wishlist with small amount of entries:

flashrom.c: In function 'main':
flashrom.c:402: warning: ignoring return value of 'fwrite', declared with

And another one note - flashrom can't be built at PowerPC arch due to

How powerpc-users of LinuxBIOS (if any) flash their machines?
With best regards!
