That's exactly my problem. I'm not sure where to look.
My understanding so far has been that the display manager asks for a
login. Hence I should probably try to install and start xdm...

I do have a user account on the system (I created one), but finding a
way to make the system require a login beats me. It does on the
console (i. e. on a different tty), but not when starting X.
Documentation about FoxOS is virtually non-existent. I also tried
Fedora, but as they use Gnome or KDE by default, that didn't take me any
