       semodule - Manage SELinux policy modules.


       semodule [options]... MODE [MODES]...


       semodule  is  the tool used to manage SELinux policy modules, including
       installing, upgrading, listing and removing modules.  semodule may also
       be  used  to  force a rebuild of policy from the module store and/or to
       force a reload of policy  without  performing  any  other  transaction.
       semodule   acts   on   module  packages  created  by  semodule_package.
       Conventionally,  these  files  have  a  .pp  suffix  (policy  package),
       although this is not mandated in any way.


       -R, --reload
              force a reload of policy

       -B, --build
              force a rebuild of policy (also reloads unless -n is used)

              install/replace a module package

              upgrade an existing module package

              install/replace base module package

              remove existing module

              display list of installed modules (other than base)

              name of the store to operate on

              do not reload policy after commit

              prints help message and quit

              be verbose


       # Install a base policy package.
       $ semodule -b base.pp
       # Install a non-base policy package.
       $ semodule -i httpd.pp
       # List non-base modules.
       $ semodule -l
