add -c to your mkinitrd command
Code:
mkinitrd -c -k 5.4.49-smp -f ext2 -r /dev/mmcblk0p2 -w 15 -m mmc_core:mmc_block:sdhci:sdhci_acpi:sdhci_pci:usb_storage:xhci_hcd:uas:xhci_pci:ext2 -u -o /boot/initrd.gz
There may be remnants of your 4.14 kernel left over and the -c will clear it out.

I only installed the basic package (a series)
If this is still true, would suggest at a minimum installing all of a/ ap/ l/ n/

You'll need to use generic+initrd for that.
so you will need to use generic, not huge kernel

It will ask you to insert cd 2 during the install
after installing a, ap and n you maybe able to chroot with the --bind mounts and install l with
Code:
slackpkg install l

I'll reinstall CD 1 because it had given me 'used=1.6G' but after using slackpkg it grew to 2.2G. Isn't /l the libraries? So you'll have to wait some time until I am done, if you please. Thanks for all your help.
