Default New to OpenBSD: problem with music, raid?

I just installed OpenBSD for the first time on my computer yesterday and I have some questions.

1) I installed mpd and ncmpc for music, and I used libao in the mpd.conf. The problem is that songs are generally playing too fast. Some of them sound like chipmunks singing. Has anyone experienced this? I looked through the openbsd documentation, but I could not find any specific setup/fix. I tried playing with audioctl, but I can't seem to change any values.
(Not sure if this is connected to the next problem)


2) I have 4 hard drives on my computer, so I used one for root partition, and setup RAID5 with the other three using softraid. I copied my backed up files from my laptop through nfs and scp, but it took almost a whole day to copy the data (connected through LAN). So, I tried benchmarking the disk io performance using bonnie++ and the results are:

Code:

Not too sure how to interpret these numbers. If anyone has some data to compare, it would be very helpful.

Here is a thread from the official misc@ mailing list which will help guide you. It's a bit dated, but the information is still valid:

It would be worth your time to search for related terms, as this topic tends to reappear infrequently.

I can't help you here. Again, searching the misc@ archives is your best bet. Of course you can post to misc@, but it is highly recommended that searching the archives is done first.

It is often more productive to search the misc@ archives than spend time searching in Google.
