i replaced the code of gnu/system/install.scm(make-cow-store target) [1]
with the code below. Now when running this code (which is triggered by
"herd start cow-store /mnt" in the installation-os)|I get this error:

herd: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 'cow-store':
ERROR: Unbound variable: gexp

What is wrong with this code? (Parentheses are matching, of course :-)


(define (make-cow-store target)
  "Return a gexp that makes the store copy-on-write, using TARGET as the
backing store.  This is useful when TARGET is on a hard disk, whereas the
current store is on a RAM disk."

  (define (set-store-permissions directory)
    ;; Set the right perms on DIRECTORY to use it as the store.
        (chown #$directory 0 30000)             ;use the fixed
'guixbuild' GID
        (chmod #$directory #o1775)))

      ;; Bind-mount TARGET's /tmp in case we need space to build things.
      (let ((tmpdir (string-append #$target "/tmp")))
        (mkdir-p tmpdir)
        (mount tmpdir "/tmp" "none" MS_BIND))

      (let* ((rw-dir (string-append target #$%backing-directory))
             ;; FIXME: calculate work-dir from backing-directory:
             ;; normpath(backing-directory + "../.overlayfs-workdir")
             (work-dir (string-append target "/tmp/.overlayfs-workdir")))
        (mkdir-p rw-dir)
        (mkdir-p work-dir)
        (mkdir-p "/.rw-store")
        #$(set-store-permissions #~rw-dir)
        #$(set-store-permissions "/.rw-store")

        ;; Mount the overlay, then atomically make it the store.
        (mount "none" "/.rw-store" "overlay"
               (string-append "lowerdir=" #$(%store-prefix)
                              "upperdir=" #~rw-dir ","
                              "workdir=" #~work-dir))
        (mount "/.rw-store" #$(%store-prefix) "" MS_MOVE)
        (rmdir "/.rw-store"))))
