setsebool - set SELinux boolean value


setsebool [ -P ] boolean value | bool1=val1 bool2=val2 ...


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 persistant across reboots.
