this depends on the used base platform. On OKL4, you have to make sure
that both binaries hello_client and hello_server are listed in the
modules section of the elf-weaver XML file (see '<pd name="modules">').
Assuming you are using OKL4, have you added both files to the list of

On Linux, no special precautions are needed because ROM files are
looked up at the current directory when starting core. Normally this
is '<builddir>/bin' where all binaries are located. So for executing
the hello tutorial, the Linux platform is most convenient.

On Pistachio and Fiasco, all ROM binaries must be loaded as boot modules
(e.g., as GRUB modules following sigma0, core, init and config).
