I take it that /var is on a separate partition from /? Assuming so, can you please post up your /etc/fstab.
Can you touch anything else on /var?

Well, I'm not familiar with fbsplash, so I'm having a spot of difficulty here. I take it that these messages occur after the line "Mounting root filesystem read-only" and before "Remounting root filesystem" (or whatever the second one is that mounts it as writable)?
Did you follow the directions at:

No you're not. A standard part of the boot procedure is that the / is mounted read-only so that it can be examined, and then it is remounted as writable.

what are you trying to screw with the file for. can you do it from a different distro or possibly a different boot sorry im bad at wording but i think youl understand what i mean. use a live disc to see if you can mess with the file (make sure its mounted as writable before attempting)
sorry that was probably useless seeing as i suck at wording and im not a user of this distro i just found the subject interesting
