This has been asked (and answered) many, MANY times on here already, and Google also has many answers for this very question; did you try to look this up first??
As btmiller said, there is no such thing as "Linux 5.14", so we don't know what you're using, but the typical way to recover such things is to either boot into single-user/maintenance mode, then type in "passwd root", and put in a new password. You can also boot from CD/DVD into rescue mode, do a manual mount of your hard drive, and manually edit the /etc/shadow file to remove everything between the first two colons (
on the root entry.
