'dmesg' prints kernel messages. These can be useful in fixing problems. 
Just running dmesg doesn't do anything else.

Here's a couple of useful commands:

whatis dmesg
man dmesg

The first tells you very briefly what 'dmesg' does, the second opens the 
man (manual) page for dmesg. This probably containing far more than you 
want to know about the command. :)
