51.2.3. Loading the Policy Package
The last step in the process of creating a local policy module is to load the policy package into the kernel.
semodule command to load the policy package:
semodule -i mysemanage.pp
This command recompiles the policy file and regenerates the file context file. The changes are permanent and will survive a reboot. You can also copy the policy package file (
mysemanage.pp) to other machines and install it using
audit2allow command outputs the commands it executed to create the policy package so that you can edit the TE file. This means you can add new rules as required or change the
allow rule to
dontaudit. You could then recompile and repackage the policy package to be installed again.
There is no limit to the number of policy packages, so you could create one for each local modification you want to make. Alternatively, you could continue to edit a single package, but you need to ensure that the "require" statements match all of the allow rules.
