I've had it running a couple of time in the past. It's 5-10 minutes of
playing with ldconfig.
I'm not sure about 1.27, as everyone I know refuses to play it.
The main problem I experienced was with extracting the 1.17
installer/patch. The whole thing is a shell script which exctract all
the files from itself. It refuses to detect OpenBSD as a valid OS,
which means you need to do a bit of patching to get it running.
I've got 1.17 files tared somewhere if you need them.

Adding the directories with libraries files to /emul/linux/etc/ld.so.conf
and run linux's ldconfig. The q3config.cfg and command line parameters are
standard. Just read the readme's
