I just installed 6.1 and upgraded to RELEASE-p1. The command dmesg is not displaying any kernel messages, any suggestions?

Suggests all is well?

dmesg outputs stuff from the current system message buffer, which contains your boot messages right after booting but those can get flushed over time. Boot messages are saved to a file though, for reference.

more /var/run/dmesg.boot



I just thought it was strange because every other system I have it at least displays dmesg.boot if there is no other messages. Is this new behavior for 6.1?

Not new behavior. A dmesg on any of my running systems (4.x, 5.x) returns nothing after a time. You were just catching it before the buffer was flushed. I don't know what triggers that, and it is possible that the trigger/timing of it may have changed in 6.x (and as always, YMMV).
