I think his question is totally python related. 

As I understand it, Richard creates executables from python scripts using a
tool, such as py2exe [1], that requires windows. He would like to have an
equivalent tool that runs on linux, to avoid going through the trouble of
having to run a windows installation.

I'm interested in such a tool as well.
