What does semodule -i list?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-04-05 14:10:08 UTC
Actually semodule -l

Comment 3 Stephanos Manos 2007-04-05 14:37:58 UTC
[root@ghost ~]# semodule -l
No modules.
[root@ghost ~]# 

Comment 4 Stephanos Manos 2007-04-05 20:47:23 UTC

And, obviously, removing seedit works too.
