    What's a good freeware/shareware that can join divx files together? I've searched google but most of them are for windows only.

    In terminal this should work...
    cat file1.divx file2.divx File3.divx > nameofnewfile.divx
    It is how I join vob files to create a single file.

    quote from
    "To join separate mpeg files (for example a movie) into one smooth mpeg file:
    cat file1.mpg file2.mpg file3.mpg... > filename.mpg
    Pay attention to the order of files after the cat command, it will determine the sequence within the final file.
    This will ONLY join the files! It has NO EFFECT on the quality.
    It DOES NOT work with AVI files!"

    This is because of the file structure and the "index" avi files use. The 2nd post there points out that you could use cat if afterwards you rebuild the index/structure using mplayer (might also work with vlc). However, if you have to use 2 programs, you might as well use a frontend that does it all for you (D-Vision for example uses either avimerge or mplayer I think)
