Which version of Pktgen are you using, seems like the latest version.

I normally only run pktgen on Ubuntu systems and currently 18.04, which makes me believe it could the version of python you are running.

I am running python 2.7.15.

On my machine the same command works and false is nowhere in the code, must be a Python variable type.

Do you have your RTE_SDK and RTE_TARGET environment variables set?
