How to install Manjaro on old Samsung GalaxyTablet 10.2?

I am interested to install on my old Samsung Tablet Manjaro Linux so that I may use my usb Microscope for biological scientific use .
May somebody give me hint how to do it please?
Thank you.

A question I have after a quick search for the model.
(I assume you want to replace the OS on the device)

Have you done some research yourself on this and how far have you come so far?

Hi Hanzel,
I wish to replace or ideally to have second boot options, thought if not possible to have as second option replace will still work for me just fine.

Thanks for care. I did some research, not too much extensive. I watched a video on youtube: How to Install Ubuntu on Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android Tablet! - YouTube and tried to find if somewhere I can find a

did I explained something?

And if you do - who’s at fault - the idiot at Manjaro forum which provided some pointers.

Manjaro ARM is made available for a limited number of devices - and unless you a lowlevel engineer you shouldn’t experiment with untested devices and Manjaro support no Samsung devices.

You can check the Tablets Archives - PINE STORE for a Linux compatible device.
