    Greetings,

    I have a short question with a potentially long answer. Here is what I need to know:

    1- What log file type are available in Mac OS X computers?
    2- How do I access those files?
    3- What info (detailed) is actually storred in those files?

    I require quite a bit of detail to resolve my problems. I realize this is a fairly lengthy answer. I greatly appreciate any help.

    Thanks.

    A short answer, open Console (/Applications/Utilities/Console). It should list nearly all log files on your machine. There are dozens of logs kept by various programs.

    Far out! I should've know that. It looks like pretty much every log file there is shows up there.

    Thanks a bunch.
