So Spotify is finally available in the US, which is good news for those who are getting tired of Pandora. Hell, Pandora played Celine Dion on my Hardcore Punk Radio Station the other day…wtf.
So anyway, I decided to sign up and was disappointed to find that they did not have an official linux client, However they do publicize an Ubuntu client here, however, since I run Fedora this is not much interest to me.
Thankfully the Europeans have already figured out how to get Spotify running on other linuxes natively, and google found this link on installing the Debian packages on Fedora 13. I am glad to report that these instructions also work on Fedora 12. So far so good on Fedora 12.
However i decided to explore their repo a bit and found that in fact they do have rpm packages. Check out the link below. Sneaky.
I bit more googling found me this link which contains instructions on installing via the apparently secret rpms.
Btw, if you are a jackass and want to run Spotify under Wine for some reason, click here for instructions.

Looks like these repositories are no longer populated. The repodata is still there, but no rpms. Looks like the only way left is to run them on wine.
Davdunc, looks like you are correct, the fedora repos are empty. Unfortunately I do not have the rpms on my desktop anymore, otherwise I would post them
However the link below will get you the .deb packages, which can be installed on Fedora
yum -y install dpkg.x86_64
Then get the .debs from the url below.
Very informative blog. Really Great.
For Fedora :
It work well
