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

comment cryptsetup luksOpen only accepts password via ssh
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.

entering mdadm --auto-detect in the rescue console does not work, but entering ls yields (hd0) (hd1) (hd2) (hd3) (fd0)

i just read here linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/… that grub gets its raid info from /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf

comment Grub2 RAID /boot
i changed my device.map according to your recommendations. i still get dropped to the rescue prompt. entering commands like insmod (md0,1)/ yields no such disk, insmod (hd0,1)/ yields no such partition and insmod (hd0)/ yields unknown filesystem. where can I specify which modules are built into the core.img?

comment Grub2 RAID /boot
the separate /boot is necessary, rest of the drive is encrypted... but lets not discuss this here, I think I will get some further problems with that as well. and yeah i read somewhere that i can also boot an encrypted partition with grub, but atm i cant even boot an unencrpyted one, so lets keep it simple ;)

comment Grub2 RAID /boot
I added the line (md0) /dev/md1 to my device.map and grub-mkconfig found the corresponding UUID and wrote it to the grub.cfg. but after booting I get this error: no such device: 9f81a...restofUUID

comment Grub2 RAID /boot
The Link looks promising. I already modified my device.map because I had a device not found error (/dev/md1), but i in fact did not think of using grub-counting-style.

comment Monitor keeps turning off after 10 Minutes
i played around with setterm just before i asked the question and at first it seemed to have no impact at all... but now my monitor doesnt turn off any more... Strange because i thought that it had no effect and setterm -default ... so seems that gentoo allready messed around with the settings and setterm -default set them back. So yeah, seems to be a duplicate then ;)
