64bit OS is working very well, I am using a Gentoo patched gcc:

$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.4.3-20050110 (Gentoo Linux,  
ssp-, pie-8.7.7)

If you usualy install a lot af binary packages like flashplayer, opera you  
will encounter a few problems - those binary packages often don't have a  
64bit variant so you have to emulate 32bit (you are lucky the kernel have  
native 32bit emulation) - the real problem is that a 32bit program can't  
use a 64bit library and a 64bit aplikation can't use a 32bit library. -  
thats mean you will need a 32bit webbrowser to view flash as there are no  
64bit flashplayer plug-in yet. - You will need two variants of glibc also  
one 32bit and one 64bit. (Usualy your distrubution will fix everything of  
this for you, but it can be good to know)

Now back to my problem, I sucessfully converted the first avi to mkv - but  
do you have any idéa of how to remove all the junk output strings will  
generate, this time i manually removed it using a text editor that wont  
work in a bash script.
