Post enable compression by default
For some reasons i need to enable as default the compression on devices.

Fstab is not a good solution, i will use for usb storage and there are too many partitions and devices to manage.

There is any way to patch the source (i use gentoo) to make "compression" and not "nocompression" the default?

Tank you for any suggestion.

Compression is generally enabled by default. You can check in the source code (in file param.h), but for files to be compressed, they must be created in a directory whose compression flag is set. You can force compression on all files created on a partition by formatting with option -C of mkntfs.
