The "libmad" library, as well as some other "tainted" libraries (mostly 
audio/video related stuff such as ffmpeg ...), is not provided by 
opensuse itself, nor provided by trinity project.
It is provided by the 3rd party "packman" repository.
You should have added it manually to your computer, or download and 
install packages manually.

There are still some KDE3 packages in the opensuse main repository, but 
you should not install them.
Instead, you must install their TDE equivalents. This is easy: all 
trinity packages are prefixed with "trinity-".
In your example, install packages "trinity-kicker", "trinity-twin", 
"trinity-tdm", etc ... and not "kicker", "kdm", "kwin" ...

So, first, remove anything related to kde3:
   zypper remove kdelibs3 kdebase3 arts
See the entire command line here:

Then, install the Trinity packages.
If you do not want the entire Trinity stuff, you can install a smaller 
metapackage called "trinity-tdebase", which allows to run a Trinity session.
   zypper install trinity-tdebase
