hmmmm -- curiouser and curiouser; in first attempt at installing
libflashsupport I used yum not yumex.

sudo yum install libflashsupport and got only the x86_64 version.

After your next post, I su - to root and

yum install libflashsupport -- with and without various versions of a 32
and a i386 suffix and got nothing.

Finally, on your advice, I browsed to the Everything site dug down
to /Packages/ found libflashsupport-000-0.5.svn20070904.i386.rpm
clicked on it; got a couple of download type guis I have never seen
before.  The rpm downloaded and installed the 32 bit package.  And,
voilá, I now have sound.

Yes, yum search did show both versions, but apparently didn't tell yum
install about it.
