I am trying to install VMWare Workstation 6.5.5 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit), but at about 2/3 of the progress bar, it freezes where it says:

Installing VMWare Player 2.5.5

Interestingly, it is so frozen, that even after I hit cancel, it is still stuck.

CPU consumption is at 0% and the command with which I launched the installer is:

sudo sh VMware-Workstation-6.5.5-328052.x86_64.bundle

Anyone has seen this before?

Any idea why this is happening and how to solve this?
