config_table, efivars/, esrt/, fw_platform_size, fw_vendor, runtime,
runtime-map/, systab, vars/

;; This is an operating system configuration generated
;; by the graphical installer.

(use-modules (gnu))
(use-service-modules desktop networking ssh xorg)

  (locale "en_US.utf8")
  (timezone "America/New_York")
    (keyboard-layout "us" "colemak"))
      (bootloader grub-efi-bootloader)

      (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))
    (list (mapped-device

    (cons* (file-system
