Thank you for your response! The version without ARB suffix seems to work. I'm facing right now another problem with this snippet - the program starts and gets segmentation fault when calling glUseProgram(self.program). 
`print self.program` gives number 1. 
Additional, as you can see in the code,  `self.program = compile_program(self.vertex_shader_src, self.fragment_shader_src)` which is a function returning the output of `glCreateProgram()`
There is no additional information about it, only segfaul. Could ou please tell me what can cause this?

Thank you!

The namespace was cleaned up, so that you only get the ARB constants if
you explicitly import them, but your snippets are actually using *core*
entry points, so you may as well use the core constant:


if you really want to use the ARB version:

from OpenGL.GL.ARB.vertex_buffer_object import *

but there's no reason to do that unless you want to use glBufferDataARB too.

Just drop the _ARB. There is also an OpenGL.arrays.vbo.VBO helper class
that can be used, should you want to avoid some of the lower-level details.

Hope that helps,
