How UnifL project was born?
In 2010 I’ve bought Lenovo Y560 series laptop w/o knowledge it’s capable of switchable graphics. When i ‘ve learned its totally custom case, that official drivers can’t be installed that easily, i ‘ve developed driver based on latest AMD+Intel drivers for myself. Turned out this is a generic problem for all AMD+Intel graphic powered laptops and i’ve decided to help everyone i could by creating custom driver sets. As i was doing lots of sets, i found a similar pattern in driver creation, so with time, after lots of trials and errors, accumulated experience allowed me to start thinking of creating something bigger – UnifL (Unified Leshcat) AMD+Intel driver that would cover maximum range of all laptops with Switchable Graphics capabilities.
Eblogger was picked up as a start-up point. It was all good until i ‘ve decided to have my own CMS engine and download zone.
Paid Shared Hosting was selected for this tasks but with time it became too tight and too restrictive.
Evolve step was to get Cloud VPS – Virtual Private Server that suited all my needs.
At some time, community grown and daily requests became too much for LAMP setup and site became really slow.
So another VPS was born, a custom set of nginx/fpm/percona that was built by me that can handle current daily access requests without a problem.
And this is where leshcatlabs.net resides at present time.
Current staff involved in UnifL project:
UnifL Driver Development – leshcat.
UnifL additional tools – leshcat & community.
Test UnifL builds – community.
Site setup and maintenance – leshcat.
Server setup and maintenance – leshcat.
Manual creation and maintenance – leshcat.
Tickets setup and processing – leshcat.
As far as you can see, the “team” currently consists only of me, so your ticket requests might took a while as well as UnifL driver development.
Hope you enjoy my work as i do ^_^.
