[opensuse] Updating VMware Workstation 10

I have VMworkstation 10.0.2. I'm trying to update it to the latest version (10.0.4), but it seems not to work.
Via the Workstation GIU it just hangs, via the command-line I can't get past the license.
The same happens with 10.0.3.
Command-line-output (for 10.0.3, but it's the same for 10.0.4) :

Extracting VMware Installer...done.
You must accept the VMware OVF Tool component for Linux End User
License Agreement to continue. Press Enter to proceed.
Do you agree? [yes/no]: y

You must accept the VMware Workstation End User License Agreement to
continue. Press Enter to proceed.

I tried inputting "yes", but it's the same.

Anyone can give comments ?

P.S. Just looked in /var/log/vmware-installer :

UnicodeEncodeError : is this the problem ? I don't understand why though.
