Do I need to modify file for RDEPENDS? If so, how to modify this?


As far as I know, Ubuntu 18.04 is not validated yet for the build. Could it cause above file-rdeps error?

I might have to install another version such as Ubuntu 16.04 if necessary.

Is it possible to complete bitbake with Ubuntu 18.04 by fixing file-rdeps error?

Any comment for this problem will be highly appreciated.
