Hi Team

I'm trying to launch LXC VM with libvirt 1.2.12 having commit
*22cff52a2b8e06c913b1f97767e5d3**90fb17fc3b *with below XML configuration..

<domain type="lxc">
    <type machine="virt">exe</type>
    <cmdline>root=/dev/ram0 rw  console=ttyAMA0 rootwait
  <clock offset="utc"/>
    <interface type='ethernet'>
      <mac address='02:74:ff:9d:52:f5'/>
      <script path=''/>
      <target dev='tap74f2-f5'/>
    <console type="pty"/>

I'm getting following errors while launching LXC VM using above XML file..

virsh -c lxc: define lxc.xml
virsh -c lxc: start

error: Failed to start domain test
error: internal error: guest failed to start: /usr/lib/libvirt/libvirt_lxc:

  -c FD, --console FD
  -v VETH, --veth VETH
  -s FD, --handshakefd FD
  -S NAME, --security NAME
  -h, --help

Please help me regarding this.
