Found the messages below in SYSLOG kernel section.

Anybody know how to fix this?
Upgraded from Jessie to Stretch
Unsure if they were there before the upgrade.

Only way is not to use proprietary drivers.

And it's "Stretch", not "Stitch".
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.5 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc1, Pale Moon 28.2.2, Mesa 18.2.6, Midori 7.0

I don't recall ever installing an Nvidia driver.
The only 3rd party driver I ever installed was Realtek on Wheezy.
