You may have done that the wrong way around. /usr/local/etc/pam.d/elsa
would be where compiling elsa put it's own PAM file, but your system is
likely looking for PAM files in /etc/pam.d. So copy the first (the one
you saved) into the second.
On the other hand, sounds like you just can't type stuff, user name OR
password. I'll give the standard advice - compile all the EFL AND elsa
from the same SVN revision, and make sure to clean out ALL old versions
of both first. Might be useful to keep an eye on the
enlightenment-cvs@list... mailing list, see if there are
any new bug fixes.
