    Hello!
    I need to do some performance testing on an Ethernet layout. To that
    end I installed a 3COM 3C509 card in this machine, and configured it
    accordingly.

    However when I configured the pktgen module using the suggested bash
    script, it caused an error to arrive in the system log:
    "pklgen: Error: your machine does not have working cycle counter.".

    Wasn't this particular problem supposed to have been fixed by the time
    the 2.4 kernel reached the 2.4.33.3 release? And does anyone know where
    I can find an updated solution to this problem. (Without upgrading to a
    2.6 series kernel. It's not possible now.)
