Bug report #16599
Buffer function crashing QGIS on specific data set
|Affected QGIS version:||2.14.11||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||worksforme|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Yes||Copied to github as #:||24501|
I'm trying to run the buffer tool on a line and it keeps crashing Qgis. The line is created by merging two sets of gps point data and running points to lines with image_date as the order. I have no problem with it working on other data sets but for some reason there are two data sets that cause the buffer to crash the program.

There are quite a lot buffer tools in the Processing toolbox, which one you used? or you used a 3rd party plugin (among them also there are a lot of buffering tools).
In my case with the native QGIS tool, no crash, using 2.18.8 under Ubuntu, but is weirdly slow for such input.
Have you tried also a clean config, by wiping the .qgis2 folder (make a backup first)?
