Any reason for me to try Calculate Linux?
I am using Ubuntu and Fedora now.

To cut the long story short: it's very fast and flexible (as any Gentoo system is) but quickly installed and quite user-friendly (as popular distributions such as Ubuntu are). A good compromise between two extremes, I should say.

Two points:
firefox only 10, the newest 17
virtualbox-video-driver: 4.2.4, the newest 4.2.6

why this?

autounmask doesn´t exist, therefore I cannot use ist.

Autounmask does work, why: run
Code:
emerge --autounmask-write <package>
as usual, then
Code:
dispatch-conf
and hit U to confirm.

All masked packages are masked because found unstable on CL. But unmasking is a trivial operation if you want to try the latest versions and shouldn't bother you.

No, it doesn´t run.

"emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy xf86-video-virtualbox-4.2.6"

It does, just stick to the correct syntax:

Code:
emerge --autounmask-write =x11-drivers/xf86-video-virtualbox-4.2.6
You need the '=' prefix if you want a particular version and not just the last available. The latest version can be installed though by executing:

Code:
emerge --autounmask-write xf86-video-virtualbox
