Well, as nobody else has had a crack at this one, I'll give it a try,
though I confess that I'd never before heard of "bootsplash". But,
Google is good. ;-)
"no such file or directory" is pretty specific; SOMETHING is goofy with
the pathname/filename. Have you checked to make sure that there's
neither a mount nor a symlink anywhere along there?
Off the top of my head, mount/symlink issues seem like the most-likely
to cause what you're seeing -- the kernel hasn't yet mounted the fs that
the file is on, and so the file *doesn't* exist.
Another possibility is of a simple typo; maybe you've got ".../3.6.6/..."
or some such? I'm sure there are other possible solutions, but I confess
none spring to mind at the moment...
