Spotify is more than a music player, is a digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs. It works on your computer, your mobile, your tablet, and your home entertainment system.
The features that makes this my music player over iTunes are:
- It has a Windows and a Linux version, which is great if you’re forced to work and Windows at work like me;
- It has a free version (with an advertising bar);
- It works with iPod’s;
- It has thousand of musics and artists;
- It can uses both iTunes and Windows Media Player libraries;
- It connects to Facebook, adds your friends and let you see what they listen to
Unfortunately the official package for the Linux version is .deb, to get it working on Fedora, there’s two ways:
The easy one
Fedora 18 (64-bit):
- $ sudo yum install http://trash.ulyaoth.asia/trash/rpm/spotify-client-0.8.8.323.gd143501-ulyaoth.fc18.x86_64.rpm
Fedora 18 (32-bit):
- $ sudo yum install http://trash.ulyaoth.asia/trash/rpm/spotify-client-0.8.8.323.gd143501-ulyaoth.fc18.i386.rpm

The hard one
Transform the .deb into a .rpm
For OpenSuse go here
# 1. Add this line to your list of repositories by editing your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free
# 2. If you want to verify the downloaded packages, you will need to add our public key
sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys 94558F59
# 3. Run apt-get update
sudo apt-get update
# 4. Install spotify!
sudo apt-get install spotify-client

ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface, wich is an open industry specification co-developed by Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Microsoft, Phoenix, and Toshiba 1, it’s a great tool to check in CLI mode for the status of your laptop battery and charger.
Installation depends on your distro, but it can be as simply as:
yum install acpi
apt-get install acpi
Most commons commands are made running in a console:
Check battery status
Battery 0: Unknown, 99%
# acpi -t
Thermal 0: ok, 43.0 degrees C
Checking AC power status
# acpi -a
Thermal 0: ok, 43.0 degrees C
# acpi --help

Early methods of upgrading Fedora, doesn’t work or aren’t supported anymore. The upgrade should be done with FedUp.
First of all users should backup their stuff and read Upgrade Issues, then let the magic begin:
1 – Do a full system upgrade
yum clean all; yum update; reboot
2 – Install latest release of FedUp
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install fedup
3 – After that, reboot and choose System Upgrade from your bootloader.
When FedUp ends, Grub2 will show a new entry for Fedora 18.
