Description of problem:
If Network Manager is not installed then services that want to listen on explicitly configured IP addresses are unable to start. Those services (including sshd, apache and others) depend on network.target and they fail because they're unable to bind to chosen IP addresses. There is an easy workaround for it:
systemctl add-wants multi-user.target network.target
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure Network Manager is uninstalled.
2. In case of sshd, make sure this is in place:
ListenAddress 10.20.30.10 - any IP configured on the system would do
3. Boot the system
During system boot we see this:
sshd: error: Bind to port 22 on 10.20.30.10 failed: Cannot assign requested address.
sshd and other services that use similar config to start fine
