I use cx_freeze on windows and on linux and it is simply the easiest for 
the end user. I distribute binaries build under SuSE 8.2 and they work on 
any linux flavour around. The main source or error coming from your code is 
the reading of (non python) files. You have to find out where your frozen 
version is looking for them (just a couple of prints before each file load 
should give you a hint about where it is looking for them).

Some libraries will not be found and you will have to add them by hand. But 
that you will see it from the reported errors.

My advice is that you should not give up and keep trying with cx_freeze.
