Still no dice, there is always an error initializing

these cryptic messages:
pycuda._driver.Error: cuGLInit failed: unknown

Does dmesg say anything?
Do you have the cuda 2.0 SDK handy by any chance?
I'm trying to recreate
the behaviour of the postProcessGL program which is included, but I noticed
they do not explicitly set up an opengl context in that code; there is a
single call to cutilDeviceInit(argc, argv) as the program is initialized
but I don't know whether that ends up calling cuGLInit or not, as its part
of the cuda cutil library. Any ideas what might be wrong?
cutil source is included under common/, there's no GL stuff in there. There's
also no explicit GL interop initialization in the SDK--for the runtime API,
that's apparently not necessary.
Check this here, too:
If you're still not having any luck, I'll try to get some help from Nvidia.
