Dilemma of CUDA and GLEW


I have a dilemma with using CUDA v5.5, i wanted to use the helper functions that comes with the CUDA Samples directory, but in order to do that i needed the GLEW version that comes with CUDA v5.5 and i get a link error when i use vertex array objects (i.e. glGenVertexArrays, glDeleteVertexArrays, etc.)
i can use vertex buffers and pixel buffer objects with no problem though. i wonder if anyone has got around this. Thank you very much.

God bless,
