It seems you're using cx_Freeze, well I've just got 3.0b2 working
under Windows, but I seem to recall I could never get 2.2 to work
under Linux, time to try again I guess.

It doesn't seem quite as nice as py2exe under Windows - doesn't do
resource editting, so you still need to include a manifest file and
link the .ico to the Desktop shortcut etc; but if it will work better
than McMillan Installer under Linux, I shall be very pleased!

Then I have to figure out how to make KDE/Gnome Desktop shortcuts,
make RPMs, oh and finish my program! ;o)
