Wait, why did it fail on the i386 Stretch build only? Let me trigger a rebuild and see what happens...OK, built.

make: dh: Command not found

Usually is because you don't have Debian packaging tools installed, debhelper in particular. Those instructions are very incomplete, and are useless. My builds at least also need to build against a "libcpuid" package that is not in Debian or Ubuntu, so I have to have that in my i-nex repo also. Manual builders need to build libcpuid first and then install it and its -dev package before installing all of i-nex's other build-deps.

If you are indeed using Kali, that's not the platform to learn on. Here is some Kali boilerplate I copied off Reddit:

Kali Linux is an incredibly specialized and notably unsafe distro designed to be used in a live environment by an incredibly small group of very technically savvy people. You are not part of this group. It is NOT Debian. Please do not use Kali Linux.

f you're interested in any of the tools Kali includes, they can be installed on basically any normal Linux distro.

i-nex = vanity software

also i once tried to install it and realised it's buggy/sluggish beyond usability.

why, oh why?

use inxi instead.
