Trying to display the roots of a polynomial over a finite field

So I'm trying to use the .roots() command on a polynomial over the quotient ring F_2[x]/x^5 + x^2 + 1, which is a field isomorphic to F_32. But it keeps giving me the following error:

NotImplementedError: root finding with multiplicities for this polynomial not implemented (try the multiplicities=False option)

Is there a way to get this to work?
