Spotify (Preview)

rpm -ivh http://www.spotify.com/wp-content/uploads/previews/spotify-release-1-1.noarch.rpm
yum install spotify

Then disable spotify repo by switching "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" in the file called spotify.repo located in /etc/yum.repos.d/".
This can be done as root:

nano /etc/yum.repos.d/spotify.repo
turn "enabled=1" into "enabled=0" and save by hitting CTRL X and confirm change by pressing y (for yes).

Truecrypt / Realcrypt

yum install realcrypt

Should you ever need to create a cross platform (Win/Fedora) encrypted container in Truecrypt, just simply create the container (with a filesystem both plattforms will be able to mount, like FAT) in Realcrypt (Fedora version of Truecrypt) and mount it in either Truecrypt or Realcrypt when necessary.

If it's created in Truecrypt Windows version you won't get a filesystem that's supported in for example Realcrypt.
