Did you checkout /usr/share/doc/tripwire-  That
has some specific info for using tripwire as installed by the Fedora
packages.  It also points you to the Tripwire policy guide for other
post installation details.  Perhaps you're jumping the gun on running
the tripwire --init?

The cron output seems like it should be modified to point new users to
the README.Fedora file rather than mentioning an install script that
does not exist.  File a bug perhaps?

When you make a mistake, make amends immediately.  It's easier to eat
crow while it's still warm.
