NetworkManager.service: Start request repeated too quickly




In trying to get DNS working on a minimal install of Debian 9.4, by
copying things from a working system, I run into this:

# systemctl status NetworkManager
● NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled;
vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Thu

Sorry for the line folding. I left out how I got to this point, hoping
the cause would be obvious. Just ask if you want the lead-in to the
above. Thanks.
