    Hey Guys!

    I'm trying to find information on general troubleshooting for the Mac including digging into the Log files, but I can't find any comprehensive info online.

    What I'm looking for is general high level "This log will you show you this" / "When Kernel Panic look for XXX in logs" etc.

    Will be happy if you can direct me to a book/site that has this info or dump any experience you have with logs.

    Thank you SO MUCH for your help in advance!
    Ran:)

    One standard location for logs is /var/log. System.log is my favorite to look for log information. Take a look and see what's there.
