The error message occurs if no Driver is available for a DBMS (in lift versions > 1.0, in 1.0 there is only a MatchError instead)
Trying to start a small project with lift this was the first problem I stumbled over when I tried to access an SQLite DB which isn't supported AFAICS.
My attempt to improve the error message: 87bae732727ca83835477ffa575a9dfba7bc1c4d
I found no list of supported DBMS yet, I think that info should be put on a prominent place at the lift web page.
