Make sure that you (or medibuntu.org) have not mixed up the Skype-static-OSS with the Skype-static package. One uses OSS as the sound system (the older audio subsystem), the other uses ALSA (the newer audio subsystem).
You can also try installing the Skype shared version from Skype.org directly.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.
Don't tell me you didn't notice this thread is 3 years old (3 years and 3 days actually) and hasn't been posted to in that time (3 years and 1 day). Also you obviously don't know yourself that Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron from memory) hasn't been supported for 12 months so it doesn't matter what the OP does now he couldn't/shouldn't update or use it anyway.
