How can I view and examine the Android log?

Where is the log file. Why not logs/system.log? I see a log using app but nothing about install information. Like failures to install because of xyz.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The only log I remember, that contains installation success/failure info is the one that can be accessed via ADB (android debug bridge). The command is:

adb logcat

But you might not have the Android debugging tools installed, so an easy way of looking at the logcat is to install aLogcat from market. Because that log is a memory buffer (I learned it form stackverflow).

Man, I sure want an easier way to get that info, but this is the only method I can remember.
