RE: tetex 3.0.0-3 format file problem

In the mail below, I see that still with version 3.0.0-3, which still I have not installed because I failed both with 3.0.0-1 and 3.0.0-2, when one is doing "latex filename.tex", in the line below the output is "pdfeTeX..."
With the previous version of tetex (2.something) this was not happening.
Is this the source of the problems with tetex 3.0.0-x ?
As far as I now latex is latex, producing a .dvi, which will be convertex in .ps by dvips.
Why doing "latex" is invoking now pdf format ?
