Ubuntu Saucy is shipping with lxc 1.0.0 alpha, it appears to be broken with Docker.

How do I install 0.9.0 on it?


I succeeded at this by pursuing the following course of action:

1/ First, removing lxc 1.0. alpha something

$: sudo apt-get purge lxc 

2/ Cleanup all dependencies

$: sudo apt-get autoremove

3/ Installing specific version of lxc

$: sudo apt-get install lxc=0.9.0-0ubuntu3.6

4/ and finishing by installing docker again, following these instructions


  • no worky, it does not find the version, did you add another source? – Sam Saffron Nov 5 '13 at 0:43
  • 0.9.0 was not stable with docker either. I ended up with installing 0.8 version of lxc by building the source on my machine – tixel Nov 11 '13 at 19:35
