$ sudo yum localinstall AdbeRdr9.4.7-1_i486linux_enu.rpm
results in a dependency resolution error:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Protected multilib versions: glib2-2.31.16-2.fc17.i686 != glib2-2.31.18-1.fc17.x86_64
Anyone that knows how to install acrobat reader 9.4.* on fedora 17 x64?
Acrobat reader is compiled as i586

Hmm, I was able to install it without any trouble. I did 'yum clean all' first, then an update. I also installed as root rather than sudo, but I don't think that would make any difference.

It seems there's a problem with the glib2 in updates-testing being newer than the one in the "fedora" repo. (The i686 and x86_64 are not the same version)
# sudo yum info glib2 | egrep "(Name|Version|Repo|From|Arch)"
Name : glib2
Arch : x86_64
Version : 2.31.18
Repo : installed
From repo : updates-testing
Name : glib2
Arch : i686
Version : 2.31.16
Repo : fedora
Not sure if I should file a bug report.

no, that's not a bug; it reads more like you had updates-testing enabled at some point and got a newer glib2 from it, but now you don't have it enabled, so yum can't find the matching i686 glib2 package when you try and install Adobe.
Just enabling the updates-testing repo, or downgrading your x86-64 glib2 packages to match the version in the non-testing repos, should resolve this.

updates-testing is always enabled, and there's a newer x86_64 version in that, while the i686 version is still one step down.
I solved the problem by doing:
yum downgrade glib2
