I have included the path to the layer in meta-laird-cp-pre-3.4 in my `bblayers.conf` and since I need the networkmanager and with information from their support team (don't trust the README apparently), I've added `lrd-networkmanager-sterling` to the `IMAGE_INSTALL` list in ``. When I invoke `$ bitbake sample-image-cp-lwb5plus`, I keep getting:

even though I've added `readline` to the `DEPENDS` list. Why is this? I expected the `rl_echo_signal_char` dependency to be resolved, any hints?
Are you using meta-gplv2? That function doesn’t exist yet in the version of readline provided by that layer.
I see, yes my project is using "meta-gplv2".

Should removal of that layer help, or would you recommend that I update
the readline version within it to the latest? (and provide an upstream

you can also look into replacing readline with editline and see if
this would work for your package needs. That will be one less package
needed from meta-gpl2
