If i do the following I get "fbo unsupported", what am i doing wrong?
GLuint fbo_id = 0, tex_id = 0, rb_id = 0;

glGenFramebuffersEXT(1, &fbo_id);
glBindFramebufferEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, fbo_id);

glGenTextures(1, &tex_id);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex_id);
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA8, 512, 512, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, 0);
glFramebufferTexture2DEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex_id, 0);

glGenRenderbuffersEXT(1, &rb_id);
glBindRenderbufferEXT(GL_RENDERBUFFER_EXT, rb_id);
glRenderbufferStorageEXT(GL_RENDERBUFFER_EXT, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24, 512, 512);
glFramebufferRenderbufferEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT_EXT, GL_RENDERBUFFER_EXT, rb_id);

GLenum status = glCheckFramebufferStatusEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT);

What do you mean by "fbo unsupported"?
Is "fbo unsupported" = GL_FRAMEBUFFER_UNSUPPORTED_EXT?
Is it on an ati or nvidia card?
On my GF6800, the same code works for me, but as soon as i put GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16 instead of GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24, i've got GL_FRAMEBUFFER_UNSUPPORTED_EXT. And i think i've seen on a different forum that it was the opposite on ati card, but i could be wrong about that.

In fact it was on this forum, in a current thread:
Again ATI and Nvidia differences with FBO's

yeah. I'm running this on an FX 5200 with driver version 76.76 so it should be able to handle it fine right?

Also, I've looked at the spec but I'm slightly confused about querying fbos. Is there a function I can call to work out exactly what is and isnt bound to each attachment point. That might help me debug this problem.
