    A crash dump would have to uncopmressed to gdb it.   If you have
    sufficient space to hold a crash dump, just point /var/crash at that
    space.  If you compress it right off the bat then someone is going to
    have to uncompress it to look at it.

    I sometimes compress crash dumps if I want to save them after I'm through
    gdb'ing them.
