Which OSes on each of them? Which python versions? Other stuff from
EPEL? What version of oVirt?

Having all of EPEL enabled is known to have caused problems in the
past, and is not recommended, nor tested (other than by people like
you :-) ).
You might try to carefully enable only Cinnamon and its dependencies
and see what you can come up with.

This might be this known bug:


Can't tell how it's triggered by adding EPEL.

If you think it's a different bug, by all means - please report it!
Thanks. And please attach relevant info, logs, etc.
