I used this post to install LXC. The installation is success and creating the container complain give this message:

"Can not write log, openpty() failed (/dev/pts not mounted?)" 

but in the end succeed, when I try to start the container gives to me this error message:

lxc-start: failed to create vethaPc2Ww-vethEbkHJT : Operation not supported
lxc-start: failed to create netdev
lxc-start: failed to create the network
lxc-start: failed to spawn 'mycon'
lxc-start: No such file or directory - failed to remove cgroup '/sys/fs/cgroup/cpuset//lxc/mycon'

I used linaro Ubuntu 12.04 on Odroid-x2 board, and the container config the same as my host system as I used the command sudo lxc-create -t ubuntu -n mycon to create mycon

If you need you may destroy the environment and recreate it again, use sudo lxc-destroy -n mycon then repeat the process again. – Braiam Sep 26 '13 at 14:53
