There are two three ways you can build and manage Novell® AppArmor, depending on whether you want to work in a graphical user environment or whether you prefer the less resource consuming text or command line based approach:

The ncurses interfaces to YaST AppArmor offers the same functionality as the graphical interface while consuming less resources and bandwidth. It is not described separately, since it works similar as the graphical interface. A general introduction into use and navigation of the YaST ncurses interface can be found in
AppArmor offers a purely command line-based interface which can be used to control AppArmor from a terminal window or via remote connections. It is described in more detail in Section 4.0, Building Profiles via the Command Line.
Start YaST from the main menu and enter your root password when prompted for it. Alternatively, start YaST by opening a terminal window, logging in as root, and entering yast2.
