It might be better to ask similar questions on the PyCUDA mailing list,

Basically you need to create OpenGL object, then get handler (pointer)
to it and pass it to PyCUDA.
I was using something along the lines:
gl_object = create texture
cuda_buffer = pycuda.gl.RegisteredBuffer(long(gl_object),
And then in drawing:
cuda_object = cuda_buffer.map()
glDrawArrays()... and so on
Important thing is to synchronize between CUDA and OpenGL,
and never call CUDA kernels on currently drawn object.
Hope that helps.
