semodule_deps - show the dependencies between SELinux policy packages. SYNOPSIS
semodule_deps [-v -g -b] basemodpkg modpkg1 [modpkg2 ... ] DESCRIPTION
semodule_deps is a developer tool for showing the dependencies between policy packages. For each module it prints a list of modules that must be present for a module's requirements to be satisfied. It only deals with requirements, not optional dependencies. In order for semodule_deps to give useful information the list of packages passed in cannot have unsatisfied dependencies. In general this means that the list of modules will usually be quite long. By default options to the base module are excluded as almost every module has this dependency. The -b option will include these dependen- cies. In addition to human readable output, semodule_deps can output the dependencies in the Graphviz dot format ( using the -g option. This is useful for producing a picture of the dependencies. OPTIONS
-v verbose mode -g output dependency information in Graphviz dot format -b include dependencies to the base module - by default these are excluded SEE ALSO

semodule_link - Link SELinux policy module packages together SYNOPSIS
semodule_link [-Vv] [-o outfile] basemodpkg modpkg1 [modpkg2]... DESCRIPTION
semodule_link is a developer tool for manually linking together a set of SELinux policy module packages into a single policy module pack- age. This tool is not necessary for normal operation of SELinux. In normal operation, such linking is performed internally by libsemanage in response to semodule commands. Module packages are created by semodule_package. OPTIONS

tracing function with Graphviz

I was searching for a tool to trace the function flow to help me understand the code. I came across the article "visualize function calls with graphviz" by Tim Jones. Visualize function calls with Graphviz I was able to obtain the flow diagram for simple programs and also for the example... (0 Replies)
