I'd locate the symbols like this:
  locate *lm317*.sym

If there is no wildcard character in the search pattern, locate 
assumes "*" before and after the pattern. If there is an explicit
wildcard character somewhere in the pattern, then no additional 
"*" are assumed. So the results of the search above are guaranteed
to end with ".sym".
