Note about LXC Squeeze-Backport version

This procedure is not complete, it don't working on my system (an author)

Preparing the host

Memory cgroup support (CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR, 534964,

is available for Squeeze since kernel version 2.6.39-bpo60-2. It is deactivated by default. You need to activate it with a kernel parameter. When using grub2, this can be easily done by setting GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="cgroup_enable=memory" in /etc/default/grub and running update-grub2.
Same goes for swap+memory (CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP), kernel parameter "swapaccount=1" - see .
