Trying to start a Linux container, I get the following:
lxc-start: No cgroup mounted on the system
OS is Debian 7.

LXC (or other uses of the cgroups facility) requires the cgroups filesystem to be mounted (see §2.1 in the cgroups kernel documentation). It seems that as of Debian wheezy, this doesn't happen automatically.
Add the following line to
cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup cgroup defaults
For a one-time thing, mount it manually:
mount -t cgroup cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup
lxc in Debian Wheezy I use in
cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup cgroup defaults,blkio,net_cls,freezer,devices,cpuacct,cpu,cpuset,memory,clone_children 0 0
(& don't forget to run
It is also possible to run LXC 1.0.7 on Debian Wheezy
