Has anybody used Rocrail together with a Lenz controller and the Raspberry Pi computer? Can Lenz interface with this computer?

I see no reason why the Raspberry will not work. I view the Rpi as just another Linux box and so far it has proven to be true.

The degree of success will depend on the hardware plugged into the Rpi. I often use a powered USB hub whenever I have USB devices that need to be powered from the USB port. This prevents power supply issues with the Rpi.

Thank you for the information guys. I am still reading about the raspberry to decide to buy one or not. I still have to get to grips with Linux as i never used it before.

When dealing with things like Linux administration, Google is your friend. :D
