[I posted this on the tor-dev mailing list and was advised to open a ticket to pursue it.]

Attempting to build tbb-3.5.1-build1, and failing. See attached log file (from "make all" for failure.

I am building on a fully-updated Ubuntu v12.04LTS/x86_64 system. I am using the USE_LXC method because KVM won't work in this VMware VM.

tor-browser-bundle.git and gitian-builder.git were both pulled early on 05 Jan 2014.

On my first attempt I did a "make all". That didn't work, so I tried
"./" (all I really care about is a Linux/x86_64 build)
and got the same error at what seems the same point in the build process.

This problem isn't listed in the "Known Issues and Quirks" section of the doc.

The build attempts end in the following failure:

Extracting partition for lxc
lxc-start: No such file or directory - failed to get real path for '/home/steve/buildtbb/gitian-builder/target--'
lxc-start: failed to pin the container's rootfs
lxc-start: failed to spawn 'gitian'
lxc-start: No such file or directory - failed to remove cgroup '/sys/fs/cgroup/cpusetlxc/gitian'
i386 lucid VM creation failed

So... any advice on how to proceed from here?

As unlikely as that "target--" name actually is, it didn't appear from nowhere:

$ cat ../../gitian-builder/var/lxc.config
lxc.tty = 4
lxc.pts = 1024
lxc.rootfs = /home/steve/buildtbb/gitian-builder/target--
lxc.arch =
lxc.cgroup.devices.deny = a

Okay, the way you want to use Gitian to build TBB is more broken than I expected. There is no fast workaround, sorry. The first thing to do is fixing #10104, I think. If that is done I'll write a patch that solves your problem (and get that back upstream where needed).

This is fixed in 8b2c44aa756ab67b45366676d0200f1ba3b1a2f9 and will take effect as soon as the fix for #10104 gets deployed.
