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
If the -V option is given, verbose error messages will be printed
from semanage libraries.
