Creating a standalone application

Dear all,
I am getting an "expected string without null bytes" error when using 
cxfreeze for creating a standalone application (in Linux-Ubuntu). None 
of my files has null bytes. I also tried pyinstaller but I got the error 
  attached at the end.
My program runs fine when executed from eclipse.  What is the easiest 
way of creating a standalone application? Is there a way of creating the 
executable file from eclipse/pydev?
Cheers,
Luis
