hi to all,
im moving from the windows world to the linux world and i need to make a python script to see if a service is instaled (ex: apache), if it is running or stoped and to start/stop a service like apache or mysql. Theres an API on windows to manage services and i need to know how to do that on linux. Can anyone help me with the module and API to work with services on linux?
by the way, im developing a app, maybe multi-plataform, to install and manage several open source packages like apache, mySQL, phpwebadmin, phpnuke, etc... if anyone have nice ideais i apreciate that.. 
thanks a lot...
