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 came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
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:
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.
