Won't dial-on-demand, routing works if run pppd manually

Hi,

I'm a Linux newby using Slackware 2.0.36 and trying to set up a
dial-on-demand server by following the demand dialing howto pretty much
verbatim.  The problem is that it won't dial-on-demand.  If I start pppd
manually, it runs fine and I can see the Internet from other computers on my
LAN by using the Linux system as the default gateway.

Any hints on how to debug this?  I don't really know where to start.

:I am looking for some help in getting pppd to start working again.  Everything
: worked fine under kernel 2.0.35 and pppd-2.2.0f.  When I tried to upgrade to
: kernel 2.2.5 and pppd-2.3.5 I can no longer get a connection.  Pppd runs
: connects to my ISP then dies. My log file is as follows:
: Apr 19 17:11:28 ba*t chat[521]: CONNECT
: Apr 19 17:11:28 ba*t chat[521]:  -- got it
: Apr 19 17:11:28 ba*t diald[436]: Running pppd (pid = 522).

: Apr 19 17:12:04 ba*t pppd[522]: Hangup (SIGHUP)
: Apr 19 17:12:04 ba*t pppd[522]: Exit.

Try setting the pppd option "asyncmap 0" or upgrade to ppp-2.3.7 .  If no
joy, then post pppd PPP negotiation logs using the debug option.

: I also tried pppd-2.2.0 with kernel 2.2.5 but this also does not work.

Yep, pppd 2.2.0 won't work for the 2.2.x kernel series.
