Following the example of 'cx-freeze hello.py', I'm getting the error message below. I put all of the error keywords into google and found no hits.

Some people in various posts have said to use Python 2.5 but a lot of my code is using Python 2.6 features.

Can you telling what I'm doing wrong?

./cxfreeze hello.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./cxfreeze", line 5, in <module>

My first question would be how did u install cx_freeze?

That is for converting a python script to a windows executable... u r trying to get an exe file in Linux?? I wonder why u would do that.

From the cx_freeze download site, it gives me a windows installer, so I believe you will have to run this on a windows machine rather than on a Linux machine to get this working.

I'm not in a Windows environment.

I downloaded the source from http://cx-freeze.sourceforge.net/

This is similar to Windows py2exe program; an entirely self-contained environment that doesn't require any dependencies (including Python!) on the other person's computer.
