Okay, this time I got further:
# uec-publish-tarball ubuntu1010-UEC-localuser-image.tar.gz novatest
Thu Aug 11 15:57:24 EDT 2011: ====== extracting image ======
Warning: no ramdisk found, assuming '--ramdisk none'
kernel : maverick-server-uec-amd64-vmlinuz-virtual
ramdisk: none
image  : maverick-server-uec-amd64.img
Thu Aug 11 16:02:21 EDT 2011: ====== bundle/upload kernel ======

--arch i386 --image
mlinuz-virtual --kernel true
Invalid certfailed to upload kernel

So, I'm assuming something is missing in my /root/creds or .~/bashrc 
The latter contains the following at the end:
NOVA_KEY_DIR=$(pushd $(dirname $BASH_SOURCE)>/dev/null; pwd;
export EC2_ACCESS_KEY="46278fbb-0376-47da-be5b-11c263f321a4:novatest"
export EC2_SECRET_KEY="65a92814-766a-49f7-98d5-1c68c48b867a"
export EC2_URL="
<> "
export S3_URL=" <> "
export EC2_USER_ID=42 # nova does not use user id, but bundling requires
export EC2_PRIVATE_KEY=${NOVA_KEY_DIR}/pk.pem
export EC2_CERT=${NOVA_KEY_DIR}/cert.pem
export NOVA_CERT=${NOVA_KEY_DIR}/cacert.pem
export EUCALYPTUS_CERT=${NOVA_CERT} # euca-bundle-image seems to require
this set
alias ec2-bundle-image="ec2-bundle-image --cert ${EC2_CERT} --privatekey
${EC2_PRIVATE_KEY} --user 42 --ec2cert ${NOVA_CERT}"
alias ec2-upload-bundle="ec2-upload-bundle -a ${EC2_ACCESS_KEY} -s
${EC2_SECRET_KEY} --url ${S3_URL} --ec2cert ${NOVA_CERT}"
export NOVA_API_KEY="46278fbb-0376-47da-be5b-11c263f321a4"
export NOVA_USERNAME="novatest"
export NOVA_URL="
<> "

Is there any other cert I need to install ?

I think I see the problem, the file I am specifying to
uec-publish-tarball is incorrect.
I'll try again with the correct filename.

I am testing nova on a test server and have gotten the cloud controller
and compute node to install properly.  I have also setup a project and a
network.  all services are running correctly as far as I can tell:
# ps auwx | grep nova
nova      3695  0.0  0.0  35708  1276 ?        Ss   Aug10   0:00 su -c

I have downloaded an image and tried to start it as per the instructions
But I get the following error:
# ls -l
total 364080
-rw-r--r-- 1 nova nova 372810310 2011-01-06 17:43

# uec-publish-tarball ubuntu-support-status novatest x86_64
bad tarball: ubuntu-support-status

I have changed the owenership of the image to nova:nova as well. Is
there some prerequisitie I am missing before starting this image ?
