I checked out this part properly:

cd triptrap      (... the same current directory)

strace -o trac tex -ini
This is TeXk, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.2) (INITEX)
 %&-line parsing enabled.
! End of file on the terminal... why?

grep 'texmf\.cnf' trac
access("./texmf.cnf", R_OK)             = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/usr/local/texlive/bin/i386-linux/texmf.cnf", R_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/usr/local/texlive/bin/texmf.cnf", R_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/usr/local/texlive/texmf.cnf", R_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/usr/local/texlive/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf", R_OK) = 0
stat64("/usr/local/texlive/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=21013, ...}) = 0
open("/usr/local/texlive/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf", O_RDONLY) = 3
read(3, "% TeX Live texmf.cnf\n% What foll"..., 4096) = 4096


Of course, the /usr/local/texlive is the tree installed directly from DVD.

May be, the texmf.cnf on DVD consist the parameters which makes TeXk
not compatible with TRIP. It was an intend?

PS. The difference in last digists in dvitype output is not explained by

Best regards
