Having problems running Exherbo in an LXC

I'm trying to run Linux Exherbo in my LXC, but I'm having some trouble, and the documents in ArchWiki or other articles seem outdated.

1. When the login prompt is first displayed on console, I enter 'root' as user name, but then I have to press two Enters to finish enter the user name, and the same as password, just like the following.
This is localhost.unknown_domain (Linux x86_64 3.10.5-1-ice) 07:31:20

localhost login: root


Login incorrect
2. vim always gets stuck.
3. running 'poweroff' will result an ro remount of /var/lib/lxc
4. cannot login on tty8, although I've enabled getty@tty8.service
