Description Mark Johnston 2011-06-02 20:40:09 UTC
flashrom will make use of dmidecode to gather DMI info if it is present. However, it is not required in order to use flashrom, and flashrom will continue if it can't find dmidecode on the system.

Fix: I've been using flashrom-0.9.3 without dmidecode on a test machine. I attached a patch which adds an option (default yes) to install dmidecode as a dependency.

Patch attached with submission follows:

My apologies, I mean to file this under ports, not misc. I can
resubmit it if I have to.
