Got it installed and booted. Here is some activity as tracked by .bash_history:

dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
	# Debian console fonts are ugly awful, so I change FONTFACE and FONTSIZE
	# in /etc/default/console-setup to "" each. Kernel's default fonts are
	# excellent when screen resolution is optimized for my ancient vision
df .
mount -t auto -o noatime /dev/sda23 /mnt
umount /mnt
mount -t auto -o noatime /dev/sda25 /mnt
mkdir /nfs
mount -t nfs /nfs
	# failed
apt update
apt upgrade
	# aborted so that new kernel wouldn't waste disk space
apt upgrade fuse libfuse2 mc
aptitude search mc
apt install aptitude
	# apt search is miserable compared to aptitude search
aptitude search kernel-server
aptitude search nfs
ip a
apt install nfs-common
mount -t nfs /nfs
	# now it works
apt install inxi
cd /nfs/Linux/Debian/
ls -l mc*
apt purge mc
apt purge mc mc-data
dpkg -i mc-data_4.8.21-1_all.deb mc_4.8.21-1_amd64.deb
	# mc 4.8.18 in Stretch and 4.8.19 later are broken
dpkg --purge xserver-xorg-video-intel

Some MC activity:
edited syslinux.cfg cmdline:
	vga=791 instead of vga=normal
	net.ifnames=0 added to restore eth0 :-)
added various bits to /usr/local

On the default TDE desktop session:
1-there is no icon in TCC for session manager

xserver-xorg-video-intel removal has had no detectable detrimental effect on
(two) Kaby Lake (2017) and (one) Eagle Lake (2008) Intel gfx systems booted to
it. Xorg's integrated modesetting driver works a charm.

To shutdown or reboot apparently requires use of cmdline.

No luck so far trying to find where to report Slax bugs found. :-(
