If that's your entire Gnus config, the error you are seeing is because
`gnus-select-method' is not set to anything yet, and Gnus expects to see
a main select method in addition to the secondary select methods (yes,
this is an instance of Gnus acting like a newsreader and expecting to
connect to an NNTP server).  There are a few solutions: 

- Set up an NNTP server as `gnus-select-method' (I use here,
  because I actually find the Gmane service incredibly useful anyway).

- Set up some other kind of group as 'gnus-select-method'; this could
  even be your mail/nnml setup, perhaps on the lines of which
  demonstrates this, albeit with IMAP and not local maildir mail.

- Start up gnus with the tricky command M-x gnus-no-server instead of
  M-x gnus.  `gnus-no-server' simply skips the step of checking for a
  primary select method/news server.
