I had already posted to installing new xorg. but you told it requested CD for dependencies. If you are unable to modify the data, probably the best solution is reinstall Xorg.
#sudo yast2 --install x11-input-synaptics
so manually download x11 input synaptics. and install them.
see this page

select your version , bit type (32 or 64 ) and download rpm file.

you can install using
#rpm -ivh x11*.rpm

actually I found this post ...

Tried it :
# cd /etc/X11/
# cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.mine
# cp xorg.conf.install xorg.conf

# /etc/init.d/xdm restart

And got Gnome back !
