Do you have avidemux available? (DISCLAIMER: I'm the Fedora maintainer

It makes it really easy. You can ether open the first video and append
the rest, or if they're named appropriately (i.e. alphabetical order)
you can open them from File->Open at the same time and it will auto
append. Just make sure you set the Audio and Video options to Copy,
unless you really want to convert it to something else.
