I've been trying to get a depth texture to attach to an FBO object.

Normally, there's no depth textures attached to this FBO and everything works just fine. However, when I try to attach the FBO:

void FrameBuffer::addDepthTexture(Texture * thetex){

assert(depthbuffertex == NULL);
depthbuffertex = thetex;


glBindFramebufferEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, fboid);

GLenum status = glCheckFramebufferStatusEXT( GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT );
maybeAlertBadStatus(status, "addDepthTexture");


The depth texture was generated using:
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT32, powerwidth, powerheight, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, data);

I've checked the GL errors, and it doesn't seem to be spouting any. However, the status variable in the end becomes GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_ATTACHMENT_EXT. Am I doing anything wrong here, else where can I look for more info?

Actually I fixed my problem. Turns out I left:
