Could you please post the output of one of the install commands?

And? What is the exact error message?

Yes, it should do that. But most probably libmad cannot be installed
because it conflicts with something you have installed. Again, the exact
output would be helpful. 

Do you currently have libmad.so.* installed?
  ls /usr/lib/libmad.*
If so, which package owns it?
  rpm -q -f /usr/lib/libmad.*
