That's why NetworkManager won't start. It is not supposed to start, because the current network configuration does not require it.

By the way, I see the same spurious error message in my logs.
If you prefer to use NetworkManager, you can switch to that with Yast/Network Settings. My experience is that I am better off without NetworkManager for a desktop with a fixed wired connection and no WiFi.
