Can I use ioquake engine with openarena .pk3?



I’ve been trying to compile the openarena engine on linux ubuntu running on virtualbox, but it compiles the executables to shared libraries. Does anyone know how to fix this, or if I could somehow use the openarena files with the code from github? I need to do this for athird year project at university. Worst case scenario I could probably buy quake 3 but I’d rather not as I don’t plan to play it really.
