well fedora 12 is obsolete, so that's never a good start...

you don't specifically install 32 bit support, you just happen to install 32 bit packages that are required, there's no switch to flip to do it.

This sounds like you've just got a dead repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/ which needs updating / deleting. For now I'd probably just delete that adobe repo completely.
