There are no xf86 strings in any openSUSE X11 package names I've
encountered in 12.2 or any recent release, if ever. Most users will
get all the FOSS drivers they need from xorg-x11-driver-video.
Supplemental FOSS packages are available for radeonhd, nouveau,
unichrome, ivtv and intel-legacy.

Starting with 12.2 (again) these packages exist.
Lokk here:

and search for xf86-video

I thought Xorg originated as a fork of XFree86? Why would xf86 have been resurrected for package names?

All my 12.2 installs have been minimals, followed by my use of solver.onlyRequires=true Zypper to add KDE and Xorg packages. Whatever XF86 packages got installed had to have happened as deps of the xorg-x11 packages I told Zypper to in, which should mean the OP and anyone else usually
only need request xorg-x11-driver-video and let Zypper or YaST figure out what xf86 packages are required.
