Tom, but you have an absolute path to the image in your loader.conf, right?
I checked the docu now once again, and every piece of it including the splash
mini-FAQ says, the splash image should go into /boot. I found the solution in
/boot/defaults/loader.conf, where it is said that the image must be located
somewhere in the module_path. The default for this however is
"/boot/kernel;/boot/modules/" so a splash image in /boot isn't found.
I think there are two solutions:
1) Add /boot to the module_path in /boot/defaults/loader.conf like
2) Remove all examples of images in the documentation, which use relative
paths and substitute the absolute paths.
Mike, do you think there might be some problems with solution #1? It would be
easier to correct, but maybe #2 is the cleaner way. I would create the diffs
for the man pages and conf-files, so you only had to commit them.
