Note will install the Linux containers package (lxc) and use it to create containers that will become potentially quite big (a whole build can take almost 100GB of disk space (without the WIndows VM)).

By default, lxc creates all the containers in /var/lib/lxc. If the partition for that directory is too small, the build will fail.

To change the location of the containers to, for example, /home/lxc, do the following (as root):

$ apt-get install lxc
$ echo "lxc.lxcpath = /home/lxc" > /etc/lxc/lxc.conf

Also, make sure that the lxc.lxcpath exists.
