Is this with the libiconv extension loaded?

i forgot one line more in the error message:

Xlib: extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display ":0.0"

however, Xlibs_support.tclz has been mounted

Since  iconv() exists in glibc perhaps this is due to a glibc version mismatch?

I meant glibc, not glib - tinycore_1.x has glibc-2.3.6 whereas tinycore_2.x has glibc-2.9 - perhaps skype needs to be recompiled against the new glibc?

I have installed glibc for 2.6.29, and i have downloaded the skype-install script in order to do things from the beginning again. But I still have the issue with skype with same message as above.

from this post: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2008-October/039132.html
it seems that Xlib was compiled with XGE, but not the x server in the TC core; could it be the problem?

We're using a static binary.  I'm not sure what's been recompiled in the appsdirectory.  Is alsa supposed to work at this stage?  I don't get sound.

i get sound with alsa; the Xlib message seems to be a warning message only, not an issue as such, so that skype should work with or without this warning... but it does not work.
