Problem with fresh installation of VMware Workstation 9.0.2 on Ubuntu 13.03 64-bit

I'm getting this traceback on installation and I am not sure what it means. Seems to be related to VMX 5.0.2 somehow:

The product is ready to be installed.  Press Enter to begin
installation or Ctrl-C to cancel.

Installation was successful.

Any ideas? I ran the installer as root via sudo.

Hello,

Have you checked system and hardware requirements?

If itis OK, change the installation source.

Hope will help.
