NAME         top

       semodule_package - Create a SELinux policy module package.

SYNOPSIS         top

       semodule_package -o <output file> -m <module> [-f <file contexts>]

DESCRIPTION         top

       semodule_package is the tool used to create a SELinux policy module
       package from a binary policy module and optionally other data such as
       file contexts.  semodule_package packages binary policy modules
       created by checkmodule.  The policy package created by
       semodule_package can then be installed via semodule.

EXAMPLE         top

       # Build a policy package for a base module.
       $ semodule_package -o base.pp -m base.mod -f file_contexts
       # Build a policy package for a httpd module.
       $ semodule_package -o httpd.pp -m httpd.mod -f httpd.fc
       # Build a policy package for local TE rules and no file contexts.
       $ semodule_package -o local.pp -m local.mod
