Bridgewater-Brunel is not compiling makeobj-extended for Linux

Bridgewater-Brunel normally provides up-to-date versions of all Sim-Ex executables.

Makeobj-extended for Linux is provided here. But it has not been updated since 2022-05-23. There is also no makeobj-extended for Linux in the Complete ZIP file.

Makeobj-extended for Windows appears to be built successfully, though I have not tested it.

I am slightly curious as to how B-B is building the nightly pakset distribution. Perhaps it is using the old 2022-05-23 version of makeobj-extended; that would explain why the distributed themes are broken. But it's possible that it is building another copy in a directory that's not exposed to public view.

I am also having difficulty getting makeobj-extended to run, which may or may not be a separate problem.

There was a report on the Japanese BBS that makeobj-extended is currently unavailable.
I've been using the self-built version for a long time, so I haven't used the recently distributed version.
I downloaded it from here and tested it, but indeed it's not working in my environment.
On the other hand, standard's latest makeobj works fine.

It seems that makeobj was updated 5 months ago. I suspect this patch may be involved.

I'm not sure if the problems Matthew is reporting from time to time are related to this.
He seems to be able to output the error by makeobj, but I can't even boot it, so I can't even print the error.

I've tested the makeobj executable for windows generated by git action and it doesn't work. This works but somehow prints a bunch of errors(same error message Matthew previously reported).
This behaves differently than the distributed makeobj. This throws a lot of errors but works.
I built the latest source myself and it was the same. It works.
But the one distributed on the server doesn't work. And it has a very large file size.

I've verified that reverting this commit no longer produces a bunch of meaningless error messages.

Thank you for the report. The commit in question appears to be a large merge commit making very wide-ranging changes to the structure of makeobj. It appears to have originated from PJMack.

Can I check - when you tested reverting that specific merge, was everything working as normal?

I'm posting my take on the matter in this thread.

EDIT:
I think the patch caused two issues.

(1) Spamming bunch of error messages

(2) Stop build environment for makeobj or generate broken makeobj.

I have no idea about (2).

I believe that this has now been fixed, the problem having been an error in the build scripts on the server.

Still it doesn't work. (´・ω・`)
I'm wondering why the one distributed on the Bridgewater Brunel server is 895KB.
Both the standard one and the self-build version are only about 300KB, but they work.
It's so fat.  ???
