I do software development for a living and as a hobby (examples). My favorite language (and ecosystem) is Python, and my OS of choice is Debian.

Thanks for asking this one. My 'knowledge' was mostly a guess... until now.

comment Light-weight alternative to Apache
In Debian, apache2 is a meta-package that depends on apache2-mpm-worker or apache2-mpm-prefork or apache2-mpm-event or apache2-mpm-itk, in that order. That is, running apt-get install apache2 will pull in apache2-mpm-worker, and if it's not available, will go on to the next one, and so on.

Sadly, it can't monitor a single process, and it doesn't log. The second requirement (logging) is much more important that the first one though. Oh, and it doesn't run without admin privileges :(

Are you still experiencing this problem? Can you paste here the output of of cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE && cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep WW on your post. Also, where do you get the above Failed to load module message?
