Ciao eziovn123, and welcome...

Ya..you can run MRL on Raspberry Pi.

You'll need to install Java JDK 7 too, because MRL is a java based software..

I advise you too have a look at the Beagle Bone Black board too:

it has 1 ghz processor, boot in less than 10 seconds and has 3d graphics acceleration ;D

I found it a very good breakdown on the differences between all of the popular single board computers.

I ended up with a MK808, but have not had much play time with it...  The BBB seems well suited for easy robotics as Al mentions...

Step #1 - get Java installed on your RasPi

So many choices ! ...  I would recommend the OpenJDK 7
Which should install with the following command ...

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk

Let us know how that goes, then you can move on to Step 2 !
