Hi, I've just installed Void Linux in a virtual machine from its liveCD 
(X86_64 version, with LXDE), for testing purposes; I'm looking for a distro 
"systemd free" to, eventually, replace my current desktop system (Mageia) 
and, so far, I'm very impressed and hopeful with Void Linux! Both liveCDs 
I've got ('flavours' LXDE, and XFCE with "musl") run so fast they look  
already installed in the HD! Quite impressive!!

However, I've some doubts; after installed LXDE version at a VirtualBox 
virtual machine, when trying o run it for the first time, I've found that 
there was only root user defined; there's no common uses set during 
installing process...

In the initial screen, the system requires user login. I tried to login as 
anon with default password, but it failed. I did login as root user (" su 
"), with the password I set during installing (that text only installing 
tool is much more simple than graphical tools I'm used with using Mageia 
and other distros... but it works!). Being a KDE user (running Mageia), I'm 
not used with LCDE sessions, and just don't know where/how to set a common 
user, once login as "su" is not a good policy, even when working in a 
virtual machine...! I couldn't find yet any graphical tool to set a new 
user and other system settings, should I make this through a terminal?

I have other doubts about setting the system, especially some related to 
multi-language input in Void Linux (with ibus), but I shall wait to clarify 
such topics after have solved basic settings of the system.
I look forward to have a sooner reply from you, folks!
