       getsebool - get SELinux boolean value(s)


       getsebool [-a] [boolean]


       getsebool  reports  where  a  particular SELinux boolean or all SELinux
       booleans are active or inactive.  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.


       -a     Show all SELinux booleans.
