can't mount iso 'could not find any loop device'

Hi guys

I'm trying to mount an iso and it says this

mount: Could not find any loop device. Maybe this kernel does not know about loop device? (if so, recompile or 'modprobe loop')
then I typed in the terminal 'modprobe loop', and it gives me

FATAL: Module loop not found.
I compiled the kernel to linux-, I can compile it again but which option do I choose to be able to mount an iso?
