getsebool - get SELinux boolean value(s) SYNOPSIS
getsebool [-a] [boolean] DESCRIPTION
getsebool reports where a particular SELinux boolean or all SELinux booleans are on or off In certain situations a boolean can be in one state with a pending change to the other state. getsebool will report this as a pending change. The pending value indicates the value that will be applied upon the next boolean commit. The setting of boolean values occurs in two stages; first the pending value is changed, then the booleans are committed, causing their active values to become their pending values. This allows a group of booleans to be changed in a single transaction, by setting all of their pending values as desired and then committing once. OPTIONS
-a Show all SELinux booleans. SEE ALSO

setsebool - set SELinux boolean value SYNOPSIS
setsebool [ -PNV ] boolean value | bool1=val1 bool2=val2 ... DESCRIPTION
setsebool sets the current state of a particular SELinux boolean or a list of booleans to a given value. The value may be 1 or true or on to enable the boolean, or 0 or false or off to disable it. Without the -P option, only the current boolean value is affected; the boot-time default settings are not changed. If the -P option is given, all pending values are written to the policy file on disk. So they will be persistent across reboots. If the -N option is given, the policy on disk is not reloaded into the kernel. If the -V option is given, verbose error messages will be printed from semanage libraries. AUTHOR
