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
2. make
3. Read flash and save into myBIOS.bin (./flashrom -r myBIOS.bin). Result
is OK
4. Write myBIOS.bin into flash (./flashrom -wv myBIOS.bin). Result:
Segmentation fault.

Could you please provide us some comments or proposals on the problem?

Thanks a lot.
