Just identified that the problem goes away if the following file within <PktgenInstallDir> is deleted.
Yes, it is safe to delete that file. I do not understand how that file would effect anything.
Is it safe to delete this file?
Thanks and Regards,

Thanks for the information.
I'm using latest version of Pktgen cloned on 24th July 2018 via:
git clone git://dpdk.org/apps/pktgen-dpdk<http://dpdk.org/apps/pktgen-dpdk>
My python version is 2.7.12
I upgraded to 2.7.15 but observed the same errors.
RTE_SDK and RTE_TARGET environment variables are set as explained on

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?
