the error disclosure of the config tool is a little bit mystic.
Building the sandpoint configuration says the following:
This looks like an error in the config tool, while it
is a mistake in the
config file. Is there any easy way to point the user/developer to the
place in the config file that is wrong (rather than printing a python
traceback)? This could make it a lot easier for newbies to create fresh
linuxbios ports to motherboards whose hardware is basically already
supported and it could safe the regulars quite some time comparing
config files between the ports...
Last I looked a lot of the problem is design issues with the python parser
generator the code is using. It does not do a very good job at remember
making it possible to print good error messages.
The case you mention does not look like the typical failure there so it may
allow for a simple fix.
