Changeset 983 for trunk/flashrom.8

Mar 25, 2010, 3:50:40 AM (6 years ago)

Autodetect ITE IT87* LPC->SPI translation on all boards without the need
for a board enable.
Move boards which had an IT87* SPI board enable from the board enable
list to the OK list.

Mark the Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H as OK.

Change the it87spi forced port parameter to it87spiport=...

Fix incorrect indentation in the man page.

Tested by Ward Vandewege on both variants of the Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4

     223If your mainboard uses an ITE IT87 series Super I/O for LPC<->SPI flash bus
     224translation, flashrom should autodetect that configuration. You can use
     225.B "flashrom -p internal:it87spiport=portnum"
     226syntax as explained in the
     227.B it87spi
     228programmer section to use a non-default port for controlling the IT87 series
     229Super I/O. In the unlikely case flashrom doesn't detect an active IT87 LPC<->SPI
     230bridge, you can try to force recognition by using the it87spi programmer.
    223232.BR "dummy " programmer
    224233An optional parameter specifies the bus types it
    234243.B "flashrom -p dummy:lpc,fwh"
    236 .BR "nic3com" , " gfxnvidia" , " satasii" and " atahpt " programmers
     245.BR "nic3com" , " gfxnvidia" , " satasii " and " atahpt " programmers
    237246These programmers have an option to specify the PCI address of the card
    238247your want to use, which must be specified if more than one card supported
    256265interface to the port specified in the parameter instead of using the port
    257266address set by the BIOS. For that you have to use the
    258 .B "flashrom -p it87spi:port=portnum"
     267.B "flashrom -p it87spi:it87spiport=portnum"
    259268syntax where
