comment How to transparently tunnel a port from IPv4 to a remote IPv6 device?
@MichaelHampton thanks for the suggestion, but I much rather would like to have a way that does not need changes on the device as I also intend to make connection from my phone (android) and likely other devices. The setup should be as simple as before from the devices perspective.

No problem, just behave like you would have if you wanted to install it in a new VM: Mount your iso file and let it boot from disk (should be default). Then it gives you the same prompt as if you were about to install. Also check this entry (its ArchLinux, but its universal): wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Change_Root#Change_root . Make sure to use the same architecture (its best to use the same iso)

Have you considered booting a live cd, mounting your system and chrooting into it? If I recall correctly, you don't need a root password (but not 100% sure)

comment Is it secure: Storing an unencrypted keyfile in a volatile location?
Thanks, that seems to be a reasonable answer. What I was basically worried about (and why I did not use an unecrypted fs) that the unencrypted file should not be recoverable after the computer is turned of (e.g. because it was written to swap). Since it seems to be true that the ramdisk is really and only a true RAM space, this helps my concerns. Thank you.

comment mysqld won't start on another system (nor on the old) - no log files available
Yes! I changed the permissions for the new system, but forgot to revert them for the old. Now I can just chroot into my old system and start mysqld from there. Thank you for the idea.
