comment How to automatically start and shut down VirtualBox machines?
VBoxManage controlvm savestate is another possibilty (at least google tells me), it saves the machines status and shuts it down cleanly, but still no way to force the host to wait.

comment How to get someone interested in using Linux
most people dont care what is underlying their webwindow, they'd be best of with chrome-OS, internetexplorer-OS or firefox-OS. they would hate linux for the error-messages they dont understand as they now hate windows for them. i have given up the hope to convince normal people.

comment pulseaudio suddenly stopped working?
there are a lot of reasons why pulseaudio might stop working. be more specific, especially on what you mean with 'suddenly'.

comment Grub2 RAID /boot
nope, for some setups it does not work out. changing the grub.cfg is maybe not the best way, you could also edit the files from which grub-mkconfig gets it information but in the end there is very little difference. At the moment I just boot from a USB-stick where grub and kernel are stored on, not what i initially wanted to do, but pretty nice, too.

comment Grub2 RAID /boot
thanks so much, I added the modules to the grub-install, now i am dropped out to the "normal" grub console. bad thing is there is no error output, so I am not sure whats the error. :/ edit: my grub version is 1.99~rc1

oh wait '§' seems to be not in the ASCII set... maybe thats the reason.

comment cryptsetup luksOpen only accepts password via ssh
In fact its post boot, the live-cd (or live-usb-stick in my case) is already running. when I enter the password to the console directly, there are no malformated characters. The only special chars I use are (%$§! which are all ASCII. But nevertheless I think it is related to a latin1 /UTF-8 mismatch. I will reformat the drive and enter the password manually on the gentoo box instead of using ssh.
