Some more details on my system.

I am running CentOS 6.5.   To install libvirt and LXC, I performed the following command:

yum install libvirt libvirt-client python-virtinst

I have turned selinux to DISABLED.

I am having difficulty getting any sort of LXC container running.  I am trying to use the following tutorial to run the hello world example:

Here are the results of my running the tutorial:

As you can see, I am getting an error.  How do I go about diagnosing this error?  This is a fresh install so the only thing I have been using this machine for is for LXC/libvirt testing.
