If there's a reason, it won't be speed; the bottleneck is the network.

+1 For wget tackling the big file. However, you don't actually need apache, you just need a simple HTTP server.

comment install kernel headers without overwriting old headers
If you need to use the header from the newer kernel, because, as you say, "my userspace program needs to link against the newer headers as it uses some new definitions", then what you are saying is my userspace program cannot work with an older kernel, so that's that.

comment install kernel headers without overwriting old headers
Why do you want to preserve the old ones if you actually want to use the new ones? It's not going to make any difference to anything that's already compiled and installed, and if this is the kernel now used on the system, then in the future, the new headers are the ones that are best applicable.

comment Places to learn linux
A lot of LDP is old but that does not mean it is out of date. It could be, but so could something written 6 months ago. I know that doesn't exactly help, but my point is, just because something was written 5 or 10 years ago doesn't make it worthless, and conversely, just because something was written yesterday doesn't mean it is correct. Most things covered in the LDP are probably also discussed elsewhere, so if you search online you may find clues that help to determine it's usefulness (you may also find something better, of course). Comparing multiple references is a good thing.

comment Random crashes on elementary OS
Bad RIP value -> this can be debugged I think but it is not easy, and it may be a hardware issue. The application that seems to trigger it is probably not important, since it is a failure within the kernel. How old is the laptop? Does anything else (e.g windows) currently run OK on it?

comment How can I set device rw permissions permanetnly on raspbian?
I did test it, BTW, exactly as is -- I have a raspbian pi -- so if it doesn't work, leave another comment.

comment How can I set device rw permissions permanetnly on raspbian?
No. You just need to create the files and use the .rules suffix. The files are processed in lexicographical order (i.e., the same as you'd get with ls -1), which is why numbers are used at the beginning, but that's not required. I don't know what takes precedence (rules read first or rules read last) in the case of some kind of conflict -- but you don't need to worry about that in this case. Just make sure the file name is unique, since man udev says "files with identical filenames replace each other".
