Looking for this issue, no one searched topics resolve my situation, I don't know how to fix it.

Can you give me a hand ?

Regards.

Question is, is it a problem?
I think mine does that but it works just fine. Just warning you that it hasn't been able to get a connection (yet) and thus your network would be down for a while during startup and potentially programs may hang.

It shouldn't do this under systemd however as far as I know... but not a reason to install systemd.

Nope, it's no a problem, the network finally works fine, the same warming message I have with privoxy service, and like you see, I run openrc, there are no reason to install systemd.

I think what linux must run without warnings too, the order of loading those services into rc have importance ?

The warning is produced because Networkmanager will say that the network started successfully so programs that require the network started will start up. If the program had a hard dependency for the network, you have a problem if Networkmanager says it doesn't have the network up (because it hasn't setup wifi) and thus never start up, or what it does now and give a warning: lie that the network is indeed up and then allow programs that depend on the network to start.

The problem is that OpenRC cannot handle dynamic up/down - but systemd can. Instead of the warning, systemd understands that NetworkManager may not have a network yet and thus not yet start programs that require the network, and patiently wait until NM or you start the network, and then it will start those services. You can even get systemd to stop services when the network disconnects.

I can read the warning complete, sorry, and see that not bad news like I am thinking.

Code:
NetworkManager   |Conectando...............    0s
NetworkManager   | * Marking NetworkManager as inactive. It will automatically be marked
NetworkManager   | * as started after a network connection has been established.
NetworkManager   | * WARNING: NetworkManager has started, but is inactive
netmount         | * privoxy          | * WARNING: privoxy will start when NetworkManager has started
WARNING: netmount will start when NetworkManager has started
xdm              | * Setting up slim ...
 [ ok ]
local            | * Starting local ...
 [ ok ]

rc default logging stopped at Thu Aug  6 20:32:44 2015



But... in this log there is two instances of NetworkManager ??

No, it's the individual items executed after NM (despite them being an dependency on net), but it looks like OpenRC decided to wait for NM anyway (the init script starts since net was met, but waits for NM). I think the word "WARNING" is a misnomer, it should be a "notice" and nothing to worry about - unless they never start and you need them to start.
