Digium's Fax For Asterisk Install Problem

I’m following the install guide for Digium’s Fax For Asterisk http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/fax/README and have reached to point where I run benchfax where I receive the following error:

/root/benchfax: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token newline' /root/benchfax: line 1:

Anyone know how I fix this and complete the install ?

I’m not sure why you’re hitting that, but running benchfax isn’t mandatory. You can cut past that and just install the generic module. The performance gains from running one specifically optimized for your processor type are actually pretty small.
